Leeds bus stop rape: Victim struck 20 times over head with rock by sex attacker

A brutal sex attacker bludgeoned a teenager 20 times over the head with a “rock or a brick” before raping her as she lay unconscious.

The terrified 18 year-old girl was left with massive head injuries and a broken pelvis but managed to stagger across the road for help.

She collapsed at the feet of a passer by who had gone to help her just after whispering “Rape”.

As she stood waiting for a night bus on Friday night around 10.45pm on Beeston Road, in Leeds, West Yorkshire, the man came up behind her.

Bus stop rapeHe “literally picked her up” then carried and dragged her struggling into a nearby garden – behind an 8ft high hedge.  There he battered her until she was unconscious then raped the teenager.

Shocked detectives revealed yesterday how the entire eight minute attack was caught on “harrowing” CCTV video which police have seized.

At one point the CCTV shows him sitting on her head to stop her crying out as a bus arrived and passengers got off.

After the rape he walked away “calmly” according to police.

Police said she had been “left for dead” and they were treating the attack as “attempted murder.”

The teen is believed to have been on her way to see her friend in Leeds when the vicious rapist attacked.

Previously police have revealed the victim is Asian in a bid to stop “unhelpful” speculation that the rape was racially motivated.

The rapist was described yesterday as “very dangerous” and police urged his family to shop him.

It also is believed he might have brought the brick or rock with him and then taken it away with him after the attack.

The man leading the hunt, Det Supt Nick Wallen of West Yorkshire Police said: “At the time the girl was found her injuries were life threatening.

“She is very, very lucky to be alive. We are treating this as attempted murder.

“She will be in hospital for a substantial period of time, probably weeks. She is also severely traumatised.”

The girl is bravely trying to give specially trained officer a description of her attacker from her hospital bed.

He is described as Asian or Middle Eastern, in his early 20s, slim with receding black hair.

He was wearing dark clothing and possibly a blue coat.

The man said nothing during the entire attack and police say one possibility is that he may only recently have come to the UK.

Det Supt Wallen said: “The offence has been captured on CCTV. It clearly shows the very disturbing circumstances of the offence. It is harrowing to watch.

“The victim is seen being carried away a short distance while struggling against her attacker who takes her into a nearby garden.

“He can then be seen striking her over the head numerous times with a blunt object that is believed to be a large stone.

“The attack lasted seven or eight minutes and he left her for dead. Her injuries were very severe. She had massive head injuries with a gaping wound in the side of her head.

“She is speaking to officers now but it is a very slow process. She is traumatised.

“At this stage we believe the suspect to be Pakistani or of Middle Eastern origin. It is possible that the suspect could be somebody from abroad and has recently come to the country.

“They may be staying at a bedsit or hostel.”
