One week on from the rape of a woman in Basildon, detectives are releasing an efit of the suspected attacker in the hope that it will lead to his swift arrest.
A 21-year-old local woman had been walking along Clay Hill Road shortly after midnight on Tuesday, November 20 when she flagged down a motorist near the Owl and The Pussycat Public House.
She got into a silver saloon car and was driven to a car park area on Partridge Green where the driver then sexually assaulted and raped her.
Investigating Officer, DI Mark Tyler, said: “This was a particularly horrendous and disturbing assault on a defenceless woman. We would ask that people cast their minds back to the early hours of last Tuesday morning and if they were in the Partridge Green area then they should call us. Furthermore, this efit is distinctive and unique. We ask that people take a good look at it and contact us with a name.”
The rapist is described as white, is in his late 30s or early 40s, has very pale skin, spoke in broken English with a strong accent and has mousey-blonde short-cropped hair that is greying. He also has a bulbous nose and large, long hands. At the time, he was wearing a light hoodie and cotton trousers.
Anyone with information in connection with this rape is urged to contact detectives at Rayleigh’s Sexual Offences Investigation Team on 101.
