Police in Maidenhead, Berkshire have launched an appeal after a young man was found in a distressed state in a public park.

Thames Valley Police say the man was found in a distressed state in Grenfell Park and had been raped.

The man was found at 3.33am on Saturday by a member of the public. The offender is also believed to have stolen the victim’s phone.

The man in his 20s told a member of the public he had been raped in the park near the basketball court.

Detective chief inspector Penny Mackenzie said: “This is an extremely serious offence and a thorough investigation is under way.

“We believe the victim was in Gordon’s bar in Queen Street, Maidenhead, last night or the early hours of this morning, where he met a man.

“The victim and the man then left the bar and walked through Grenfell Park.

“The victim was then raped by a man near the basketball court in the park.

“Following the offence, the offender may have stolen the victim’s phone.

“The man that the victim met in the bar may not be the offender, however we need to speak to him as he could have vital information that can aid our investigation.”

“This man is white, about 5ft 8ins, with short brown hair, possibly in his early twenties.

“He was wearing a T-shirt and Nike trainers. He did not speak any English and may have been Romanian.”

:: Anyone with information or concerns can call police on 101.
