Woman sexually assaulted after night out in Redditch


Story from the evening mail

POLICE are hunting a man who sexually assaulted a young Midland clubber after a night out.

Detectives appealed for help after a 20-year-old was sexually assaulted in Redditch at around 2.50am yesterday.

The woman, from the town, was outside Fever nightclub in Market Place with friends when she was approached by a man making threats.

He took her away from her friends and forced her into a public access area by the Three Cooks Bakery at the top of Market Place, where he sexually assaulted her.

The man was described as Asian and around 5ft 6ins.

He had short, dark, spiky hair, wore a dark jacket. No weapon was used.

Det Insp Leighton Harding, of North Worcestershire CID, said: “This was a serious assault and the woman is understandably very distressed. Police are keen to talk to anyone who was in the area at the time and perhaps witnessed what happened or remembers seeing a man fitting the description.

“Incidents of this nature are rare and, while we don’t want to alarm anyone, we would remind women in Redditch to be careful and not get separated from their friends.”

Police believe the offender was alone and may have approached other women before the attack.

Anyone with information is urged to call Redditch CID as soon as possible on 0300 333 3000 or Crimestoppers 0800 555111.
