A PERSON was raped in an alleyway in Weston-super-Mare town centre last month.

The incident took place between 3am and 5am on Monday, March 25, in an alleyway off North Street by a man wearing a black tracksuit.

Detectives investigating the incident want to speak to two men who are believed to have been in the area between 4:17am and 4:32am.

One was wearing a large parker-style coat with its hood up, skinny jeans and trainers.

A 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of rape, and has since been released on conditional police bail.

The victim is currently being supported by specialist engagement officers from Operation Bluestone, our rape and serious sexual offences investigation team.

Investigating officer DC Amanda Johnson said: “This was a terrifying incident and we’re continuing to support the victim, who was incredibly brave in coming forward and reporting this to us.

“Our investigation is well underway, and we believe these two men may have information which could be key.

“Could you be one of the men we are looking to speak to? Were you in the area at the time? If so, then please get in touch.

“Whilst we appreciate this will cause anxiety in the community, we would like to provide reassurance that this is believed to be an isolated incident.”

If you know the two men or have any information which could help, call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5224076245.
