– Police are hunting a man who raped a teenager in the foyer of an inner-city apartment in a horrifying attack.
The 19-year-old woman was approached by a man after she got out of a cab at the intersection of High and Chapel Streets, Prahran, on August 25th.
After the woman left the taxi between 2:30am and 3am, the man offered to walk her home but she refused.
He then followed her east down High Street and into an apartment complex, forcing her to the ground as she made for the lift, and then raping the teen.
The man, described as being of Indian appearance with an Indian accent was wearing a brown jacket, a white T-shirt and dark denim jeans.
Acting Detective Sergeant David Galea from the Sexual Crimes Squad labelled it a “brazen” attack by a man who could strike again.
