Taunton sexual assault

Police have released two images of a man they want to identify following a serious sexual assault in Taunton during the early hours of New Year’s Day. A woman in her 20s was attacked in Goodland Gardens, behind Debenhams, at approximately 1.15am.

Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Matt Shaw said: “The victim is understandably very upset by what has happened and has been extremely brave in reporting the incident to us. She is being provided with all the support she needs. As part of our inquiry I’d really like to trace the man in the images we’re releasing.”

The police accept the pictures are not of the highest quality but it is a start and if you think you have information about his identity, or about the incident, please call the police as soon as possible on 101 and provide the call handler with the reference 5218000365.

If you’d rather not to talk to police, you can also ring the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. They never ask your name or trace your call.
