Cold Case: Girl, 16, Abducted 2 Days Ago

A 16-YEAR-OLD northern suburbs girl has told police of her terror as she was abducted by two men in Pooraka earlier this week.
The teenager was snatched on Maxwell Rd, Pooraka, between 3.30pm and 4.30pm on Monday. She was held down in a car and driven around for between 30 and 40 minutes but is not sure where she was taken during her ordeal.
The girl was walking to a skate park on Maxwell Rd to meet a friend when a man got out of a dark green four-door sedan about 300m from the park, she told police.
The car had a loud exhaust and window tint that was coming off.
The man then dragged her into the car and both men attempted to sexually assault her.
Detective Senior Sergeant Peter Shanahan said the teenager had her mobile telephone and jewellery stolen while she was in the car.
"There was some sexual connotations in the discussions and some attempt at sexual activity," he said.
"She is OK. She is still shaken but she is coping all right."
The girl received a few scratches during the attack. The men let her out of the car near St Thomas More's Primary School on Yorktown Rd, Elizabeth East.
The driver of the car is described as 25 to 30 years old with an average build. He is slightly chubby, with dark skin. He had black, wavy collar-length hair and some facial hair. His hair was parted in the middle.
He was wearing black track-style pants with a coloured stripe down the side and a dirty plain blue singlet. The second offender was described as a caucasian male, 30 to 35 years old, skinny and tall with a shaved head. He spoke with a slight British accent.
He was wearing black track-style pants with an unknown coloured stripe down the side, white shoes and a tight T-shirt top.
Michael Shrader, 24, regularly uses the skate park. He said there was often people hanging around.
"It is a notorious area for people hanging out around here," he said. "There are a lot of idiots about."
Sen-Sgt Shanahan confirmed that the girl had reported the incident immediately. However, police did not inform the public about the abduction until yesterday.
"We have been working with the victim in attempting to compile a computer generated image (of the two men)," he said.
Meanwhile, a girl, 14, told police yesterday she had been sexually assaulted by a group of seven men in the western suburbs.
The girl was grabbed by the men in Davidson St, Rosewater, as she walked to the Alberton Railway Station just after 8pm last Thursday. "A number of the men held her while one of the men sexually assaulted her," a police spokeswoman said.
The men fled when disturbed by people passing by. The men were all described as being Aboriginal and wearing dark clothing.
Anyone with information on these crimes should call CrimeStoppers - 1800 333 000.
