Do you feel safe in this world? As a woman, I don’t.
There have been numerous instances where a woman’s faith has dwindled when it comes to envisioning the world as a safe haven. She’s not even safe in her own home, leave alone on the street. And, as the night progresses, the predators come out and hunt.
In an unfortunate and seriously shocking incident, a seventeen-year-old girl was sexually assaulted not once or twice but thrice. And, by three different men. That too within the space of an hour in East London.
The victim got separated from her friends in Tower Hamlets, east London. They were at a nightclub in the area. Police said that the girl was trying to find her way back home via Central London when the series of unfortunate events happened.
The detectives are still trying to piece together the flow of attacks, and what exactly happened with the victim. They also believe that the girl was drugged at some point.
They have CCTV footage of the girl trying to figure her way out on September 29 night. The first assault happened at around 11.55 p.m. on Cambridge Heath Road. She was carried by a man. According to the footage, which was not released due to poor image quality, showed the duo entering a doorway on the same road. The man was not caught on cam, after that. But, the police found some items of the girl’s top half clothing on the location, later.
The girl was stumbling down the streets, where a bearded male, on a racing bicycle, followed her. After he caught up with her, he directed her to an area away from the street. A while later, the camera picked up that the second suspect leaving her.
Shortly after that, the girl was again seen walking down the street with her clothes disheveled. It was minutes after that, at around 12:40 a.m., she was assaulted again by two-three men in between parked cars.

This is such a chilling news. We are dumbfounded with the unfortunate acts and upon seeing such mentality of people. She was victimised by not one but three predators, on the same night and within the same hour. How fucked up and perversive is this world? Shame!
