We're offering a £5,000 reward to find a man in connection with a rape in Hull

We are offering a reward of up to £5,000 for information to find a man in connection with the alleged rape of a woman in West Park, Hull in the early hours of Saturday 9 February 2019.

The victim had been drinking with friends on the evening of Friday 8 February in the New Griffin pub on Anlaby Road, when she was approached by a man who engaged her and her friends in conversation. The man appeared to be drinking alone in the pub.

When the victim left the pub, she walked down Anlaby Road towards the city centre and it is believed that the man followed her. As the woman reached the junction of Anlaby Road and Walton Street, she entered West Park where she was allegedly attacked and raped.

The suspect is described as speaking with a foreign accent. He had tanned skin, is aged in his mid-twenties and is approximately 5’8” to 5’10” tall with a proportionate build. At the time of the incident the suspect had dark hair and some facial hair.

“The victim has been through a horrific ordeal and we are appealing to anybody who may have information on this attack to contact us, with the promise that you will remain completely anonymous.
