Woman Sexually Assaulted In Southampton Park

A woman's been sexually assaulted in a Southampton park.

Police are investigating a report that a 26-year-old woman was subjected to a serious sexual assault by a man in Lakelands Park, Freemantle, during the early hours of Sunday 20 April.
 
Hampshire Constabulary Detective Inspector Jim Park, who is leading the investigation, said:
 
“This was an isolated incident that should not cause people living in the Freemantle area to be alarmed.
 
“Enquiries so far have established that the woman had travelled in a car from the Empress Road area of Southampton earlier the same evening.
 
“We're appealing for anyone who saw a silver or blue convertible BMW car at either of those locations on Saturday night (April 19) into Sunday morning (April 20).”
 
Anyone with information is asked to contact CID at Southampton Central Police Station by phoning 101. Mini-com users can phone 18001 101. Information can be given anonymously by phoning the independent Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
