Police in the United Kingdom, arrested a man who attacked a girl and dragged her out of a Pizza Hut before raping her.

Police in Surrey, arrested the man after a teenager was taken from a Pizza Hut, before being raped and stabbed in the stomach.

The 17-year-old girl was in the Pizza Hut on Waterloo Road in Epsom, when she was attacked by 32-year-old Costica Voedes, who then dragged her out of the restaurant.

Police were called to the restaurant just after 10:50 p.m., and began searching the area. They soon stopped the man matching the description of the suspect at a nearby park.

The girl was found a short time later with a stab wound to the stomach, and she told police that she had been raped.

The girl was taken to St. George's Hospital in Tooting, where her condition is said to be serious but not life threatening.

Voedes was charged wounding with intent, rape, kidnap, false imprisonment, possession of an offensive weapon, affray and common assault.

Detective Inspector Nick Chambers said that this seems to have been a pre-planned attack and they believe that the girl knew the alleged attacker.

Chambers also said that a staff member at Pizza Hut tried to intervene when the man violently attacked the girl, but the suspect fought back and the staff member was left with an injury to his arm.
