Attempted Rape near Teesside University Campus

Published

on

Detectives are making a further appeal to trace a number of people who could potentially assist with an investigation into an attempted rape in Middlesbrough.
The incident took place on Sunday morning, 4th October, between 4am and 4.30am on Whitfield Avenue, a path that runs off Angle Street close to Marton Road. 

The victim was approached by the suspect close to a Royal Cars taxi rank on Marton Road and she walked with the male from Park Vale Road onto Angle Street and then onto Whitfield Avenue, where the offence took place. The victim was left with minor injuries which did not require treatment.

Officers have previously appealed to trace a man who was stood close to the Royal Cars taxi rank, near to the junction of Martin Road and Southfield Road when the 42-year-old female victim was approached by the suspect. 
This man could have vital information which could greatly assist officers with the inquiry. He is described as a white male, aged in his late forties to early fifties, of medium build with ‘short back and sides’ hair style and wearing blue jeans and a red top. Officers would like this man to contact them.  

It is believed that two cyclists were also in the area of Marton Road near to the junction with Southfield Road around the time of the incident and officers would also appeal to these people to contact them.
Detective Inspector Matt Murphy-King, from Cleveland Police Major Crime Team, said: “Firstly, I’d like to thank those members of the public who have responded to our appeals for CCTV – this is very useful to the investigation and your assistance is greatly appreciated.
“I’d also like to make an appeal to any motorists who were in the area around the time of the incident. It is believed that a car pulled up close to where the incident took place and this disturbed the suspect. 
“Anyone who may have information regarding this incident or the person responsible is asked to contact police.”
The suspect is described as a white male, aged 25-27 years old, around 5ft 8” tall, English speaking with possibly an Eastern-European accent, blonde hair which was parted and styled with gel with shaven sides and medium or athletic build. 
He was wearing a navy blue, shiny waist-length jacket fastened with a zip to the top, grey or blue jeans and bright white Nike Air Max trainers. 

Any witnesses or anyone with information is asked to contact DI Matt Murphy-King from Cleveland Police Major Crime Team on the non-emergency number 101, Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
