Another man has been charged over the 'double rape' of a girl in Birmingham earlier this year.

Mohammed Ismaeel, 22 and of Witton, will appear before Birmingham Magistrates' court to face rape charges on November 15. He was arrested in August.

The charges relate to an incident in July when a 14-year-old girl was raped in a vehicle - just hours after she had suffered the same ordeal at Witton railway station.

DCI Tony Fitzpatrick, from British Transport Police, said: “Since both these awful incidents in July, we’ve been working hard to piece together exactly what happened. We are now in a position to charge a man in connection to the incident in the vehicle which happened after the first rape. 

“We are still looking to trace the good samaritan who came to the help of the victim shortly after the second rape. Seeing the 14-year-old in a distressed state, he drove her home to her family. He is described as a white man, approximately 30 to 40 years old, slim with facial stubble. He was wearing a red and black chequered short sleeve shirt with no collar. 

“He spoke with a Birmingham accent and drove a seven-seater family car. The victim remembers that the car had a lot of air fresheners hanging from the rear view mirror.

"If you are that man, or know someone matching that description, please get in touch as soon as possible. You could help us understand what happened.”

Anyone with any information is urged to contact BTP by sending a text to 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40, quoting reference 236 of 26/10/2017.
