Latitude: Police appeal for witnesses

Suffolk police investigating the rape at Latitude are keen to talk to anyone who can help with the investigation:

DCI David Cutler, who is overseeing the investigation into the rape, said: “We know there will be people with information that can help this enquiry and we are appealing directly to the group of males who met up with the young woman on Thursday night around 10pm - 10.30pm.

“There will be several men in this group who were not present when the rape occurred and we need you to come forward to give an account of what happened. We are working to trace those involved and we will do everything we can to locate you so if you are reading this appeal please do the right thing and come forward.

“If you were at Latitude on Thursday night, and particularly if you were in the red campsite area around this time you may also be able to help our enquiries. If you saw a young woman wearing denim leggings, a yellow and white check shirt, a black cardigan and Wellington boots you may well have seen the victim of this incident and it is important that we hear from you too.”
Suffolk Police are on 01473 613500.
