POLICE are re-appealing for information after reports of a rape at a park in Stoke-on-Trent last Saturday (Sept 26).
Officers cordoned off a large area of Cobridge Park on Leek New Road over the weekend.
The action was taken as an investigation began into a serious sexual assault in park reported shortly after 9pm.
A 16-year-old boy, from Stoke-on-Trent, has been arrested on suspicion of rape. He’s been released conditional bail pending further enquiries.
Detective Inspector Scott McGrath, from CID North, says: “We’re currently working hard to establish the circumstances around what happened that night and are really interested in speaking with anyone who might have vital information.
“We believe there was a number of people in the area at the time and we’d ask them to get in touch.”
The victim has been offered support by specialist officers.
Anyone with any information should message Staffordshire Police on Facebook or Twitter quoting incident number 779 of September 26, call 101 or alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
