Police appeal following rape in Droitwich

Detectives in Droitwich are appealing for information after a teenage woman was raped in the town in the early hours of Saturday (5 May) morning.

The incident occurred at around 3am in an alleyway between Trent Close and Worcester Road when the woman was approached by an unknown man and attacked.

It is believed the woman grabbed a sharp object and stabbed the man in the side, back or abdomen as she defended herself.

Detective Chief Inspector Steve Tonks said: "This was a terrifying incident for this young woman and one that has caused concern in the local community.

"It is important we catch this man as soon possible and I'd urge anyone who witnessed anyone acting suspiciously in the area around the time of the incident or who has any information that could help with our enquiries to get in touch.

"The victim fought the man off and in the process we suspect he has suffered a stab wound to his side, back or abdomen. It is possible that he sought medical attention for this or attempted to treat it himself at home. Do you know someone who suffered a stab wound over the weekend? If so, we would l like to hear from you.

"We are thoroughly investigating this incident and specially trained officers are supporting the victim.

"The support of the public will be key to helping us catch the offender and any information no matter how small could be vital."

Anyone with information can call 101 and quote incident 788s of 5 May 2018. Alternatively information can be passed on anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or by going to
