We’re sorry ma’am, but we cannot spend money on finding the man who sexually assaulted your daughter!

Oh yes, when it comes to crime, money issues and low-quality investigation and prosecution are not exclusive to the third world.

 

A teenager from Milton Keynes was attacked last month at a park in Bournemouth (England) by a man who tried to abuse her sexually.  During this violent event, the teenager fought and struggled free avoiding the rape.

 

He got on top of me but I didn’t stop struggling and I managed to get up. I have no doubt that he would have sexually assaulted me. There was no other reason for him to do what he did[1]. 

 

 

 

According to the Daily Mail[2] the police said they were not in doubt she managed to escape a serious sex attack.  They gathered evidence including the girl’s skirt and t-shirt to perform DNA testing, trying to identify the suspect.

However, the mother of the assaulted girl received a phone call from police in Bournemouth.  The agents told her they could not justify the expense £500.00 on the DNA test.  Allegedly police department’s argument is the girl successfully avoided the rape, so the crime could be considered as a simple assault rather than a sex attack.

 

The attacked girl and her parents are worried and disappointed about this decision, since they think a potential rapist is on the loose and it isn’t possible to know who his next victim might be.

Although no other sources have confirmed it yet, the Telegraph has informed the investigation has been dropped.
