Police are appealing for information from the public following reports of a sexual assault in Northwich.
On Sunday 25 September 2022 police received reports that a man had been sexually assaulted by two unknown men in Northwich.
The incident is reported to have taken place sometime between Friday 23 and Sunday 25 September in an abandoned car which was parked at a car park at the top of Witton Street, near to Percy’s Autos.
Enquiries in relation to the incident have been ongoing and as part of the investigation officers are now appealing for information from the public.
Detective Constable Stacey Connor, of Northwich CID, said:
“I understand that a lot of time has passed since this incident occurred but I want to be clear that we have been following a number of lines of enquiry which has led us to now be in a position to appeal for information from the public.
“I also want to reassure the local community that incidents such as this are rare and we have been doing all we can to trace the people responsible since this incident has been reported to us.
“As part of our enquires, we are urging local people to cast their minds back to September to see if they can remember anything significant, which might assist with the investigation.
“We appreciate that this is asking people to think back over a period of a few months but even the smallest detail can be significant when piecing together a case.
“We’re particularly keen to hear from any members of the homeless community, or anyone who frequents the car park, who may be aware of who was staying in the area at the time of the incident.”
