PASSENGERS in a silver car could be key witnesses in a Redditch sexual assault.
Police have issued an appeal to trace those in the car, which was making its way along Headless Cross Drive some time between 12am and 12.45am on Sunday (March 3) and may have slowed down as it passed a woman near the water tower there.
The sexual assault took place around midnight when a woman in her 20s was confronted by a man in an underpass leading from near the recycling bins on the Tesco car park through to Mickleton Close in Oakenshaw. A motorist later found her in a distressed state in Evesham Road.
Detective inspector Leighton Harding said: "There is no suggestion that anyone in the silver car in Headless Cross Drive was involved in the offence but we are trying to build as detailed a picture as possible of what happened that night. The vehicle’s occupants may have seen this woman and I would urge them to come forward and help our investigation."
Another possible witness is a man who was near Evesham Road when the woman was found. He was wearing a cap and a dark coloured body warmer over a red and black striped jumper."
Anyone with any information should call Redditch CID 101, quoting incident number 9-N-030313, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
