The brave victim allowed West Midlands Police detectives to release footage of her terrifying ordeal in a bid to snare the monster who carried out the attack.

The 25-year-old left the Walkabout Bar, Broad Street, with a dwarf known as Kevin at 4am on October 19 last year.

The pair walked along Broad Street towards Granville Street when a man approached the pair near the Sainsbury store.

He spoke to the dwarf before violently grabbing the woman and carrying her across the street and raping her.

She was later found in a very distressed state by a passer-by.

The brave victim allowed West Midlands Police detectives to release footage of her terrifying ordeal in a bid to snare the monster who carried out the attack.

The 25-year-old left the Walkabout Bar, Broad Street, with a dwarf known as Kevin at 4am on October 19 last year.

The pair walked along Broad Street towards Granville Street when a man approached the pair near the Sainsbury store.

He spoke to the dwarf before violently grabbing the woman and carrying her across the street and raping her.

She was later found in a very distressed state by a passer-by.

House-to-house inquiries have been undertaken, hours of CCTV footage from cameras across the city centre have been trawled, witnesses have been spoken to and forensic evidence has been secured – but cops have failed to trace the attacker.Police are also still trying to find Kevin, who has failed to come forward despite repeated appeals for him to talk to police.

Det Con Danette Calvey, of West Midlands Police’s Public Protection Unit, said: “It must be remembered that this woman has been attacked and that she has displayed remarkable courage by allowing us to release the footage.

“She hopes these new images may jog someone’s memory and that their call may make the difference to her attacker being caught or left to roam the streets.

“I implore people to take a good look at the CCTV and focus on the man. I appreciate it was a long time ago but the situation will have looked very odd and will undoubtedly have stayed with you.

“We will not give up on finding the man who carried out the attack. We will also not give up on finding Kevin,” added DC Calvey.

Kevin, who is purely a witness in the investigation, is believed to be a white man, in his 20s, with short dark hair.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, in confidence, on 0800 555 111.
