Woman Raped In Basildon Underpass
A 26 year old woman has been raped on her way home from a meal with friends.
It happened around 11pm on Friday night (18th July) in an underpass near Broadmayne in Basildon.
The man also stole her handbag.
He's described as being white, around 5ft 9-10 tall, skinny build, aged around his mid-20s with blonde/light brown hair.
He had an English accent and was wearing a hoody and jeans and ran off towards The Gore and the Pitsea area.
DI Richard Sage from the Sexual Offences Investigation team said:
"This was a nasty, vicious assault on a young woman which has left her injured and very distressed. I need to find the man who did this as soon as possible and urge anyone who thinks that they may have information or believes that they may know who is responsible to contact me and my team at Rayleigh SOIT on 101 or give information anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
Drivers in Essex are being urged to slow down when it's raining - after 5 deaths and 69 serious injuries on the county's roads in the last year.
A new service is now available in Essex, providing a single point of contact for victims and survivors of sexual violence and child sexual abuse.
More than 100 people have lost their lives through suicide in prisons in England and Wales so far this year - nine at Chelmsford Prison.
