Appeal for witnesses after woman attacked in Lancaster

Updated 7/5/14: The below appeal has now be cancelled as the two men police were looking to speak to have now come forward, but if anyone has any information about the assault on the woman that prompted the appeal, please contact Lancaster Police.

Officers are appealing for two men to come forward after a woman was attacked on the outskirts of Lancaster.

Between 1.45am and 2.05am on Saturday 26th April, a 41-year-old woman was assaulted by a man near to St George’s Quay as she walked home from a night out in the city.

The police believe that the woman may have spoken with the two men in a local pub and would like them to come forward as they may be able to assist the enquiry.

DI Phil Jones of Lancaster CID said; “I should firstly emphasise that the two men we are looking to speak to are not suspects, and they have not done anything wrong.

“However, they may have some useful information, as we believe they spoke with the victim prior to her walking home in the early hours of Saturday morning.

“I would also ask the wider community, if you recognise these men, to please contact us and help us identify them. Any information provided will be treated in confidence.”

Anyone with information can contact Police on 101, quoting log number LC-20140426-0140.
