Witnesses sought to a rape – Reading

Alert message sent 03/08/2016 12:54:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after a woman was raped in Reading earlier today (3/8).

At around 1.30am the victim, a woman in her forties, was outside the Mansion House in Liebenrood Road when she was attacked by two men, one of whom raped her. They may have been disturbed by a noise and then made off on foot towards Prospect Park.

Police were called soon after and made a search of the area.

Investigating officer, Det Inspector Dave Turton of Reading CID said: “This was a nasty attack, which has understandably left the victim traumatised. Fortunately such attacks are very rare in the area but if anyone has any concerns or information about this incident we would ask them to call us on 101.

“There are currently officers at the scene of the crime as we continue our investigation.

“We would urge anyone who was in the area in the early hours of this morning and heard a woman in distress or saw two men running in the park area to contact us a matter of urgency on our non-emergency number 101.”

If you don't want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers (opens new window) anonymously on 0800 555 111 . No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
