Traumatised by a sex attack in a park, a teenage girl was at least comforted by the likelihood the man would be identified by DNA.
Priya Francome-Wood, 17, had kicked and struggled free after he lay on top of her.
Police said they were in no doubt she had managed to escape a serious sex attack.
They took away her skirt and T-shirt, telling her 'a surprising amount of DNA' can be transferred in such cases.
But five days later Miss Francome-Wood's hopes were shattered by a phone call from police in Bournemouth, where she was attacked during a weekend visit to a friend.
To her horror, they said they could not justify spending £500 on DNA testing.
