A women was raped in broad daylight by vile attacker who stalker her for nearly two hours despite calling police to report her fears.

She called 999 to report some predatory advances that she felt unsafe white.

Police then failed to attend and prevent the woman from being harmed after a man stalked her for two hours before raping her in the street.

Hasan Kyoybasha, 30, approached a woman who spurned his advances before he moved on to the victim.

The witness then called the police to report his predatory behaviour towards the second woman, aged in her 30s.

But they failed to attend as Kyoybasha ‘pestered, badgered and followed’ the lone woman for an hour and 45 minutes.

The man eventually pounced on the lady, savagely raping her in broad daylight on Ashley Road, a main road in Poole, Dorset.

Dorset Police said they were experiencing ‘higher than average calls’ so their officers were unable to attend.

Officers were then contacted again reporting she’d been raped and they carried out an internal review which decided there was no need for any staff to face misconduct procedures but assure us the procedures have now changed.

Kyoybasha appeared at Bournemouth Crown Court, earlier this month where he was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment after he was found guilty of rape and sexual assault.

Judge Jonathan Fuller QC praised the woman for her bravery in making the 999 call.

A Dorset Police spokesperson said: ‘The review found that at the time of the call, Dorset Police was responding to a higher-than-average number of calls for service and officers were not immediately available to attend.

‘Subsequently, the incident log was closed by a supervisor, as police units remained heavily committed.

‘The review recommended that a radio broadcast detailing the contents of the 999 call could have been made to alert officers in the area who may be attending other incidents.

‘As a result of this, the force has changed its procedure to ensure that these matters are prioritised and radio broadcasts will always be made in cases where there is a concern for a person’s safety.

‘We will always endeavour to prioritise attendance at an incident where suspicious activity has been reported and concerns have been raised for someone’s safety.

‘No misconduct was identified.

‘Those who use violence or intimidation against women and girls such as Kyoybasha will be relentlessly pursued and brought to justice.

‘We will work with partners to create an environment where women and girls are both safe and feel safe from violence, intimidation and harassment through influencing and supporting change within communities and policing.

‘Our thoughts continue to remain with the victim of Kyoybasha’s abhorrent offending’.
