SSP, Aged 17
After a night out – I was unable to stay at my friends house as planned. So her male “friend” took me to a hotel on New South Promenade, once I was there, he took me to an empty bedroom told me that I could lie down and he would get into bed with me. He was a lot older than me, I was very scared and didn’t know what to do. I knew I needed to get out, so I pretended I needed to go to the toilet, then ran as fast as I could out of the hotel and down the promenade. It was late at night and I was terrified, but I felt that I had been lucky to get away.
