Man who raped teen girl with help of mother could have more victims

Child protection detectives have released a computer-generated image of a man believed to be responsible for the rape of a girl in Toowoomba in 2005.

Peta Butler, now 27, tells Queensland Police her mother took her on a trip from their home in Brisbane to Toowoomba when she was 15-years-old.

Peta’s mother has since been convicted of arranging for a man to rape her there and was arrested in October 2016.

Detectives are now working to find the man who raped her in 2005.

He’s described as being in his mid-to-late 40s at the time, extremely obese, around 175 centimetres tall with a shaved head, stubble and distinctive bulging blue eyes.

He was wearing an expensive suit and drove a car with cream coloured leather seats.

He is known only as ‘Thommo’ and would now be aged in his 50s.
