Pregnant mum attacked in home by intruders who photographed her ordeal for Facebook

A seven months pregnant woman was tied up and beaten in her home by thugs who then posted pictures of the sickening attack on Facebook.

Phoebe Tilt, 20, was gagged by the assailants and hurled to the floor. One of the males then SAT on her bump and hit her in the face.

The Sun reports the terrified woman was left convinced her unborn baby would die.

Days after, Phoebe got a message via Facebook with photos of the attack attached to it. A month later, the same poster wrote to her telling her he was 'watching' her and her family.

The paper reports that Phoebe's baby, a little boy named Dexter, was born safely three months ago, but that the mum has been left traumatised by her ordeal.

"I felt sick. How could anyone be so evil? What had I done? Not only had they beaten me up and nearly killed my baby, they were taunting me with these grotesque images," she said.

Phoebe revealed that she had been getting ready to go to work on the morning of the attack, when the two men - who appeared to be wearing council-logoed jackets - knocked on the door of her Portsmouth flat.

One burst in and covered her mouth with a gloved hand as soon as she opened the door.

Phoebe - whose roofer partner Scott Keith, 25, was out at the time - said words could not describe her fear as one of the brutes wrapped duct tape round her mouth, hands and ankles.

"One then climbed on top of my bump and repeatedly punched my face. I had no idea what they wanted. I didn't stand a chance," she said.

Phoebe said she was dragged to her bedroom and left in fear of being raped, before the attackers fled after arguing in what she 'believed was an African language'.

The police say they are 'exploring several lines' of enquiry, while Phoebe says she is unable to rest until she knows the men have been caught.
