Police hunt Newcastle rapist
DETECTIVES are investigating a report that a 46-year-old woman was raped in Newcastle.
The incident is believed to have happened at around 5am, on Saturday, August 17, close to Bath Lane on a grassed area near the city walls.
It is believed she met the man in the smoking area at the rear of Switch Bar, on Scotswood Road, and then walked with him to a grassed area in the area above where he raped her.
Detective Sergeant Helen Anderson, from Northumbria Police's Rape Investigation Team, said: "An investigation is underway to identify the man responsible for this attack and we are appealing for anyone with information to contact us.
"In particular we would ask people in the Switch Bar or One Bar to think back and ask themselves whether they remember seeing this man or know who he is.
"We would also like to hear from anyone who remembers seeing a man and woman in the area of Bath Lane on a grassed area near the city walls in the early hours of Saturday, August 17."
The man is described as being 6ft tall, in his late 20s of normal build with dark wavy hair. He was wearing a white shirt, black matching trousers and jacket, and dark brown shoes.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 ext 69191 or ring the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800-555-111.
