Op Hectare - Victim's Route

States of Jersey Police are now able to confirm the route followed by the teenage victim in the period leading up to her rape at a bus stop in Gorey in the very early hours of Friday, 1 November (Halloween night).

The weather on the night was overcast, damp and windy with extremely low levels of ambient light.

What is known:

  • 11:30pm – The victim leaves a residential property in the area adjacent to Gorey Common on her own.
  • She slowly makes her way to the southbound Gorey bus stop but becomes disoriented around Gorey Common, primarily because of the low light combined with her lack of familiarity with that part of the Island.
  • The victim arrives at the bus stop by 11:53pm. At this point she is identifiable on dashcam footage from a passing Liberty Bus.
  • She is seen at the bus stop again at 12:06am when the same bus passes in the opposite direction.
  • Her mother collects her from the bus stop at 12:13am.
  • In her time at the bus stop the attacker twice offers her a lift, which is declined on both occasions. It is after the second offer that the attack takes place.

Based on the available evidence the Police have narrowed the window for the attack to the period between 12:00am and 12:13am.

Police continue to follow multiple lines of enquiry and remain extremely keen to speak to anybody who was in the area between 11:30pm and 12:30pm that night.
