A woman fought off five men during an attempted gang rape in Burgess Park in June. 

Police have issued their first public appeal today (Tuesday, November 10) in relation to the attack.

They are urging anyone who may have dashcam footage from nearby roads, or have witnessed anything suspicious in the area at the time, to get in touch. 

The victim was attacked by the group of five between 2am and 3am while walking through Burgess Park, near Albany Road, on Saturday, June 13.

Police said during a ‘prolonged struggle’ she managed to fight them off, but was sexually assaulted during the attack.

One suspect is described as wearing white trainers, light denim jeans and a red hooded jacket. His hair was plaited. A second suspect is said to have been aged in his 30s.

Anyone with information should call 101 or, to remain anonymous, Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

This happened in June and the police are only now asking for witnesses or film ?. Also, surely they have better descriptions of the scumbags than ‘One suspect is described as wearing white trainers, light denim jeans and a red hooded jacket. His hair was plaited. A second suspect is said to have been aged in his 30s.’. Seems to me the police are not bothered about catching them
