Police are appealing for information following reports that a woman was raped in Peterborough.
The victim, a woman in her 30s, was walking along Padholme Road from Cavendish Street at about 9.30pm last Tuesday night (September 6th) when she was approached by a man in a dark MPV.
The car stopped near the barber shop on Padholme Road and the driver tried to talk to the victim through the passenger window of the car. She ignored him and carried on walking down Padholme Road towards North Bank Road.
Around 20 minutes into her walk she saw the vehicle parked up on the side of the road.
The victim continued to walk down North Bank Road before stopping at some green land, where she was grabbed from behind and pulled into a bush.
The victim recognised the man as being the same person from the car who assaulted and raped her before fleeing.
The offender is described as Middle Eastern or East Asian looking with an Afghanistan accent. He is approximately 5’4″ and chubby with a round face and black hair, three inches long, cut in a pudding bowl cut. He was wearing blue navy drawstring tracksuit bottoms with a dark t-shirt.
The victim suffered minor injuries from the assault.
