The incident took place in Payers Park between 11.30pm on Tuesday 22 October and 12.30am on Wednesday 23 October 2019.

Following a review of available evidence, officers have identified a man who provided assistance to the victim before leaving the scene when medical crews arrived.

Detective Sergeant Lewis Tompsett, a senior investigating officer for the case, said: ‘There is no suggestion this man is in any way involved in the offence but we know he helped the victim and therefore believe he may have important information that can help us progress with our enquiries.

‘I would therefore encourage him to get in contact with us as soon as possible by calling us on 01303 289600 quoting 46/203464/19.’
