Teenager Fights Off City Sex Attacker 

A Coventry teenager was dragged away from the street by a man who tried to attack her as she left a city nightclub yesterday.

The 17-year-old had left the Colosseum nightclub in Primrose Hill Street and was walking to McGuigans bar at the junction with Swanswell Street when she was set on at 1.45am.

The girl had seen two black cabs outside the bar and wanted to get one to take her home.

But as she neared them she was grabbed from behind by a man who dragged her of fthe streets.

The teenager managed to struggle free and ran away to safety.

The attacker is white, in his 20s and medium build. He has dark brown hair with a centre parting and wore a cream jacket and dark trousers.

The victim did not suffer any injuries but was left very shaken by the incident.

A police spokesman called for help in finding the offender. He said:

“The offences could have had far more serious consequences. There had to have been a number of people in Swanswell Street and Primrose Hill Street making their way home after visiting local nightclubs.”

He urged any witnesses, particularly the two black cab drivers, to ring officers on 024 7653 9010.
