Newcastle Sex Ring Update: 30 Arrested, 80 Possible Victims

Police officers in Newcastle involved in the investigation Operation Sanctuary have now arrested 30 people on suspicion of conspiracy to rape following raids over the past two weeks.Women and teenagers with addiction problems and learning difficulties are among those police believe have been targeted by men for sex. Northumbria Police now have a list of 80 teenage girls and vulnerable women they now need to speak to who they believe are either victims or witnesses of the sexual exploitation.In the first operation 27 people were quizzed by police, including two women. Three further arrests were made on February 4. All of them are currently on bail pending further enquiries.

Deputy Chief Constable Steve Ashman said police now had the names of 80 women, who are either alleged victims or witnesses to abuse, and they will attempt to contact them with the help of voluntary organisations.He said all the women and girls involved are linked by their extreme “vulnerability” and may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs and then subjected to sexual assault or rape. He added that the alleged victims may have frequented business premises in the city which brought them into contact with men and taxis used to transport them to different addresses.

He said: “The women and girls we’ve identified so far are all vulnerable in some way, this is the common factor. It could be they have a chaotic lifestyle, a drug or alcohol addiction or are, or have been, in care. Members of the public may recognise this description as a person they know – someone vulnerable who is potentially involved or at risk of being taken advantage of. These are crimes that are happening behind closed doors, in local areas, and it is likely that people living nearby recognise the behaviour we’re describing.“It could be groups of men going into properties with teenage girls or young women. They may see women under the influence of drink or drugs who may appear distressed.”

“The one thread through this is vulnerability. Vulnerability by an addiction to alcohol, or substance misuse, in some cases the women will have learning difficulties.”Those involved are teenagers and women of various ages with some younger females in the care of a local authority or having recently left care.”

The sex crime investigation is centred around Newcastle’s Westend area. Which just so happens to be the part of Newcastle where there is a large amount of Muslims living. Paedophiles targeting the most vulnerable to abuse. Giving alcohol and drugs. Particular reference to taxis and take aways. Meetings with community leaders to ask for support. Does it ring any bells……..Rochdale!!  This has Muslim involvement written all over.

A visitor to the site left the comment below which also appears to add weight to the theory of Muslim involvement 

I was told by someone in the know with a reliable source of information,that the perpetrators in the spate of recent arrests over alleged rapes and grooming of vulnerable girls in Newcastle are of eastern European and Asian origin and some of them work for a well known taxi company and have since been suspended or sacked.This is of course only hearsay,at this stage but it seems to be pretty well common knowledge.It does seem strange though,does it not that the Police are continually saying to the press that those arrested are from various backgrounds and not from one community, and if it is true that taxi drivers are involved then how come there is no danger to the general public ? would you be happy with your daughter or wife getting into a taxi with a potential abuser, I also wonder why are suspects in these sort of cases granted bail,what is to stop them disappearing into other parts of the country where there is also many different communities to afford them shelter.

This weekend police are appealing to the city’s taxi drivers, business, restaurant and take-away owners and hotel and bed and breakfast managers to report anything suspicious. They will also be handing out information leaflets to encourage people to come forward if they have information.

DCC Ashman said: “We need people to report this to us – we can’t do this alone. We all have a collective responsibility to make our communities a no go area for this type of behaviour. If it doesn’t look right, if it just feels wrong, then ring us
