Police investigating report of rape in Eastbourne
7:37am Thursday 25th July 2013 in News
A woman reported being raped in Eastbourne this week.
The woman was walking along the Cuckoo Trail at 11 am on Monday July 22 when she saw two men, one of whom was known to her.
She said she was pushed to the ground and raped before they ran off. She sought medical treatment before it was reported to police the next day.
Detective Inspector Gavin Patch said: "We would like to speak to a man who was walking his dog who may have spoken to two men and a woman in this location. It is also possible that two teenagers walking together saw these three people.
"Local officers are patrolling the area to identify any witnesses and offer reassurance to people who use the footpath."
Anyone with information or witnesses are asked to contact police on 101 quoting serial 1144 of 23/07.
