Thugs spit at woman and threaten her with rape after she confronts them for 'abusing taxi customers'

THIS is the shocking moment thugs spat at a woman and threatened to rape her after she confronted them for reportedly abusing female taxi customers.

The victim was left in tears after filming one of the group shouting "we will rape you" during the row in Portsmouth city centre.

She had stepped in to challenge the men after accusing them of threatening to attack three women who had turned down a taxi ride.

The footage shows a man being restrained by his mate as he brands her a "slag" and tells her to "f**k off" – causing her to reply: "This is what it's like to be a woman in the UK."

He then tells her he "f***ed her phone up" as she tells a bystander: "They just threatened to rape three women."

The yob then approaches the camera and rages: "We're gonna rape you. We're gonna rape the whole f***ing country. What you gonna f***ing do about it?"

'I'M NOT SCARED OF YOU'

But the brave woman continues filming – despite a second man appearing to spit at her – while the first thug mocks her for crying.

She continues to stand her ground, telling him: "Just because I’m crying does not mean I’m f***ing scared of you."

As the video comes to an end, cops arrive and she repeats her allegations to them before being led away to safety.

She posted the footage to Facebook on May 4 where it has been viewed more than 200,000 times.

POLICE INVESTIGATING

The woman said: "I had to stand my ground. Yeah, I was loud but I did it for a very good reason.

"I watched as three girls went to get in and soon walked away from what seemed like an empty free taxi until three men clambered out shouting they were going to rape them.

"They was all sat in the car, that's why the girls who I saw get in originally got straight out and walked off hastily. I heard them shouting 'we're going to rape you, we're going to find you and rape you' and I was walking over the roundabout and was like: 'What did you just say to those women? I want to know why you think you can say that.' That's when I got my phone out."

Hampshire Police confirmed they were investigating the row, which took place just after 4am on May 4.

A spokesperson added: "We are actively gathering all relevant information and have already obtained witness statements and CCTV footage, which is assisting investigators to gain a comprehensive picture of the whole incident."

Derek Stone, licensing manager at Portsmouth City Council, added: "We're working with the police and if any offences have been committed by the licensed taxi driver we will look at taking the appropriate action."
