Crimestoppers offers up to £2,000 for information following sexual assault of university student in Nottingham

Independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers is offering a reward of up to £2,000 for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the sexual assault of a teenager in Nottingham [27 June 2013].

The incident occurred just before midnight on Monday 11 February 2013 when a 19-year-old woman was making her way home in the back of a dark green London-style Hackney taxi.

The victim was driven to the junction of Trinity Avenue with Albert Road, just off Lenton Boulevard, where the taxi driver stopped the vehicle, went to the back of the taxi and forced the woman to carry out a sex act.

The victim was able to force her way out of the taxi before she was found in a distressed state by a member of the public.

The wanted man is described Asian, around 40-years-old, 5”6 tall with a big stomach. He was bald with closely shaved or cropped hair all over and was wearing a dark jacket or hooded top that had a silver zip.

Crimestoppers is offering this reward of up to £2,000 for information passed to the charity’s 0800 555 111 number that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for this crime.

Glynn Gilfoyle, Chairman of Crimestoppers’ Nottinghamshire committee, said: “This young woman has gone through a horrendous ordeal and has been taken advantage of by a callous individual who she trusted to get her home safely.

“It sickens me to think someone like this is still at large, so I would urge anyone with information that might lead to his arrest to come forward anonymously and call Crimestoppers anonymously – tell us his name, not yours.”

To be eligible for this reward, information must be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Information provided directly to the police will not qualify.
