The victim, a woman in her 30s, was walking home from a friend's house at around 8.30pm Sunday (March 6). She walked through the Wigstones Road area, between Nene Parade and North Drive, known locally as the BMX Park, when she stopped and asked a man for directions. The man has then took hold of her and raped her.

The offender is described as a white 18-year-old man wearing a black jacket.
