  1. They were known to each other
    In a staff car park
    And no one heard anything
    In a busy hospital staff car park

    • Most rapes involve people known to each other, stranger rape is exceptionally rare. They can happen in quiet places as well as very public ones and everything in between.

  2. At that time in day would not be busy car park hopefully the lady is OK and does not suffer with nightmares and everything else which can come from being raped.
