Sex Assault: Police Return

Police have been questioning drivers at a petrol station in Dunstable, a week after a woman was sexually assaulted by a man who got in her car as she was driving away.

The man had a knife when he got in the car and sat in the woman's front passenger seat.  He forced the woman to drive from the Shell garage on Poynters Road to Tomlinson Avenue where Bedfordshire Police say the victim suffered a serious sexual assault.

The attack happened on the evening of Thursday 21 February 2013.  Police officers returned to the Shell garage on the evening of Thursday 28 February, one week on, to talk to drivers in the hope of finding new information about what happened.

Officers hope returning to the site would jog drivers' memories.

CCTV images of the man who got into the woman's car have been released (right) showing him wearing trousers with a reflective strip.

Detective Inspector Ruth Dodsworth told Heart: "If [drivers] were here last week, we were showing them the stills and asking if they had seen this man hanging around the exit to the petrol station and particularly asking about the trousers he was wearing."

Anyone with information about what happened is asked to call Bedfordshire Police on the non-emergency number 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
