[23 JUL 01] CRIMES, FIRES & ACCIDENTS
Sex Attack On Coventry Woman

A 27 year old woman has suffered a serious sexual assault in the Bell Green area of Coventry.

The incident took place Sunday 22 July between 3 and 3.30am close to Clarke Street in Bell Green.

The woman had just taken a taxi to the area. As she walked up the road a man suddenly grabbed her from behind, dragged her into an alleyway and committed the serious sexual assault.

The victim then heard footsteps and she believes that the offender heard them too as he suddenly made off.

The attacker is described as a white male, 6ft tall, well built with short cropped blond or light brown hair. He had a few days stubble on his face. He spoke with a strong northern, possibly Manchester, accent and was wearing a green round necked short sleeved shirt and light brown trousers.

WDC Sharon Fox said:

"This was an extremely nasty attack on this woman who is obviously extremely shocked and tearful after her ordeal. We would like to talk to the private hire driver who dropped the victim off as he might have vital information which could help us to track down the attacker.

"The woman screamed loudly and we are keen to hear from anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious or has any information at all that could help.

"At the present time, we are keeping an open mind as to whether this incident is connected to other recent assaults in the city."

Anyone who can help is urged to contact the police on 024 7653 9485 or the Crimestoppers confidential hotline 0800 555 111.
