Woman raped in bowls club carpark after knife threat

A WOMAN was raped in the carpark of a Brisbane bowls club after being threatened at knifepoint.

Detectives from the Dutton Park Criminal Investigation Branch are investigating the sexual assault of a 24-year-old woman in the Cannon Hill carpark on Sunday morning, August 2.

Police said the woman was walking alone around Eagle Street near Customs House in the Brisbane CBD about 3.30am on Sunday and accepted a lift by a man driving a silver car.

He then drove her to the car park of a Princess Street bowls club in Cannon Hill and produced a knife before sexually assaulting her.

The woman fled and flagged down passing motorists who were able to stop and provide her with assistance.

The man has been described as Caucasian with sandy hair that is short on the side and longer on the top, chiseled features with thin lips and a normal build.

He was wearing denim jeans and a dark t-shirt or long-sleeved shirt with the sleeves rolled up.

Detectives are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the lone woman with long blonde hair getting into a silver vehicle about 3:30am on Sunday morning or the vehicle parked in the Cannon Hill Bowls Club around 3:50am to report the matter to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Dutton Park detectives on 3020 8150.

Investigations are continuing.
