RENEWED APPEAL TO TRACE DOG WALKER

Officers investigating a sexual assault in West Park Long Eaton in December last year have renewed an appeal to trace a dog walker. The incident happened during the late afternoon or early evening of December 2nd. A 54-year-old woman said she had been walking through the park with a man who then sexually assaulted her. A short time later, the man and woman were walking out of the park and stopped to speak to a man who was walking three dogs on one lead. The dog walker was wearing a woolly hat and a bomber jacket, and was walking what were thought to be two Staffordshire bull terriers and a German Shepherd.
Detectives investigating the allegations want to trace the dog walker to see if he has any information that could help. Anyone who was walking through the park, off Wilsthorpe Road, around that time on December 2 should call Detective Constable Jonathan Harris on 101, quoting crime reference 52171/15 or send him a message online by visiting the Contact Us section of our website here.
People can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online
