Bridgwater rape – appeal
Avon & Somerset Police have just released a new CCTV image of a man they want to talk in connection with an ongoing rape inquiry. The original incident took place in Bridgwater on New year’s Day.
The assault took place between 4.45am and 5.20am when a woman was walking home from a night out. She was attacked by a man, not far from the Malt Shovel Pub on Wembdon Road where it joins North Road and Victoria Road.
Police describe the man as being aged in his 40s, with a bald or shaved head, wearing jeans and a large white hooded jacket which appears to have a distinctive large number seven printed on the front. Detectives are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time, especially if they were driving and may have dashcam footage available.
Meanwhile the victim is being fully supported and given access to any help she may need.
Anyone who recognises him, or who has any other information which could help, is asked to get in touch through www.avonandsomerset.police.uk/
