Neighbourhood officers from Avon and Somerset Police have been deployed at the scene of a serious sexual assault in Bath today, exactly a week after it happened.
The officers were on Victoria Bridge Road in the early hours of today, 14th April, to see if they can identify any witnesses to the attack which took place on the road sometime between 4.15am and 5am last Friday, 7th April.
The victim was attacked by a man of slight build who was wearing a black top and red cap.
Detective Inspector Adam Bunting said: “The victim is being kept fully supported and informed as our inquiry progresses.
“We’re deploying local officers at the scene exactly a week after the incident in the hope we can identify anyone who witnessed the incident or who saw anything suspicious in the area at the time.
“In particular, we’re still keen to speak to two men who supported the victim in the moments after the assault before officers arrived.
“We believe the two men, who are described as being aged in their 40s or 50s, could have information which could assist us.
“Anyone with information, no matter how insignificant they think it might be, is urged to contact us as it could prove to be crucial.”
A 30-year-old man arrested in connection with the incident has been released under investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to call 101 and provide the call handler with the reference 5217076623.
