Police investigation continues.

Police are investigating the sexual assault of a man that is alleged to have taken place in Plymouth on between 3-6pm on Friday 5 July.

The attack took place in a wooded area adjacent to Tavistock Road, near to Crownhill Fort. 

Detective Constable Paul Enticknap from the Sexual Offences and Domestic Abuse Team (SODAIT) said: “We are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area on the afternoon and early evening on Friday. The victim is a man in his 20’s and remained in the area following the attack.

“I would like to speak to a mane described as white, in his 30’s with short blond hair, wearing white shorts and a red and white polo shirt.

“We are trying to trace the members of the public who came to the aid of the victim near to Farm Foods as they could also hold information vital to our investigation.

“We also need to hear from anyone who was in the area who may have seen anything suspicious, or either of the men described as this could help police narrow down the timeframe of the attack.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact quoting crime reference CR/059953/19.
