Police looking for leads in rape case

A Saturday night on the town turned into a terrifying experience for a 21-year old Greenlandic woman who was sexually assault on her way home

Shortly after four o'clock on Sunday morning, a 21-year old Greenlandic woman was leaving Café Rex on Pilestræde to take a train from Copenhagen's Central Station when she was followed by four young men.

The young woman, on holiday in greater Copenhagen, attempted to escape her pursuers by running, but the group caught up with her and forced her into an gateway where one of the men sexually assaulted her while the others watched and made degrading comments about Greenlanders, reported daily newspaper Berlingske Tidende.

After the encounter, the young woman pulled her clothes on and ran toward central station. She was helped by a young woman by the name of Anja, or Anne, who gave her money for the train and called her parents.

When the woman arrived home, her parents contacted the police, and the woman spent Sunday recounting her story to Copenhagen Police.

Police are looking for witnesses who might have seen the 21-year woman leave Café Rex early Sunday morning. The young woman is not familiar with the city and has been unable to give police a precise location of where the assault took place. Police and the woman toured the area on Monday in hopes she could recognise the gateway.

When the young woman fled the scene, she left her Gucci purse behind. Police hope the bag will help further the investigation.

Police also hope to speak with the woman who helped her on the train. So far no witnesses have come forward in the case and police will be interviewing café staff and friends of the young woman in hopes of gaining a lead.

The young man accused of raping the woman is described to be between 170-180 cm, about 20-years old and fair-haired. The man was wearing a dark shirt, white jogging shoes and possibly white baggy trousers.

Police can be contacted at 3314 1448.
