Hunt for woodland sex attacker stepped up

POLICE today stepped up their manhunt for a sex attacker who carried out a “terrifying” assault on a woman as she walked home from work.

The 29-year-old was returning to her car which was parked in Cypress Avenue, Sholing, Southampton, when she was forced into woodland by a man who carried out what police are describing as a “very serious sexual assault”.

Residents in the area have been left in shock as their usually quiet neighbourhood found itself at the centre of a major police investigation that has seen patrols stepped up as they continue their search today.

Yesterday large parts of Spring Road and Merryoak Road were cordoned off by police while officers examined the scene and carried out extensive doorto- door-enquiries.

Mums picking up their children from the nearby schools gathered near the police tape confused about what was going on.

The victim was walking to her car between 2.30am and 3am yesterday when she was approached and threatened by a man.

According to Hampshire police the man then forced her to a nearby woodland area near Merryoak Road where he carried out the horrifying attack.

The attacker was described as white, in his early 30s, around 5ft 8in to 5ft 9in with short dark hair and of medium build.

He was clean-shaven and wearing a dark-coloured jumper and jeans.

Det Insp Jim Park, who is leading the investigation, said: “This was a terrifying ordeal for the lady concerned, but there is nothing to suggest that this is linked to any other incidents at this stage.

“I would like to appeal to anyone who was in the area who heard or saw anything that may possibly be relevant to our investigation.

“I would also appeal to anyone who may know a friend or relative who arrived home in the early hours of this morning and who was perhaps behaving out of character.

“I would always urge anyone regardless of age, both male and female, to be aware of your personal safety especially after dark. Stick to well-lit areas, and where possible try not to walk alone and carry a personal safety alarm.”

I appreciate that it can't be printed but if the council's parking restrictions prevented her parking immediately by her place of work, then the police should tell the council in no uncertain terms to think again. If she had a distance to cover it would have been normal employee relations, I'd have thought, for her employer to arrange an escort. This kind of thing should not be happening.

I agree with what Dai Rear said, we are told not to walk in poorly lit areas after dark, but if the council refuses to light areas and stop car users from parking in safer areas then it's their fault.

What are you on about? So the council should end all parking restrictions because of the slim chance someone might get attacked walking back to their car. Like the inspector says in the piece, why wasn't she carrying a personal safety alarm?

She shouldn't have to wear a personal alarm, or worry about where she was walking and at what time. Her attacker should be able to keep his hands and body to himself, end of story. The attacker is fully to blame, not the poor victim.
I will never understand all these comments saying she should/shouldn't do this, that and the other. She shouldn't have to change her actions due to a small number of sickos out there who have no self control or morals.
I hope she is able to recover fully from this and eventually get the closure she needs.

Yes I agree to a degree, but at the end of the day, we should be tackling the issue of the number of attacks happening in Southampton, rather than handing out 'advice' that will not undo what has already happened.

I agree. The ridiculously low sentences handed out don't help. Dai commented on someone getting 200 hours community service for a serious sexual assault.

Dai rear makes a valid point, you on the other hand don't. A personal alarm will have the same effect as a car alarm going off in the middle of the night, treated like an annoyance and ignored.

Dai makes a good point about her employer doing more. Plenty of firms arrange escorts and set up park and ride schemes ect. To abolish all parking restrictions though is quite frankly ridiculous.

Shame s***, different day.

Ok advising alarms and walking in well lit areas is all well and good but a whole lot more needs to be done.

It seems sexual attacks are always happening you can publish the same news artical most of the time and just replace the place and date

Tougher penalties need to be in place, more policing is required, stop these sickos from committing these horrendous crimes.

You know what id like to see? In the olden days where people would be put in the stocks and have tomatoes thrown at them, something similar should be brought in where they'd locked up and the victims can give them a good hard kick in the b***ocks. That'll make them think twice.

No. I didn't say that all parking restrictions should be ended but if someone can satisfy the council that their shift ends in the early hours then it is not unreasonable that a permit be given for the duration of their shift to allow them to park near work, in precisely the same way as happens if they are physically handicapped. To counter the objection, these cars need not display a sticker, because ANPR is available to councils.

Making exceptions for people because they work late! It gets dark before 5pm for a good part of the year. Where would you draw the line?

I agree with what Dai Rear said, we are told not to walk in poorly lit areas after dark, but if the council refuses to light areas and stop car users from parking in safer areas then it's their fault.
muppets.... have you any idea what you are talking about ? thought not ....

We can ask the DE to verify I'm not steekemcglue.
It's not like they've not corrected you when you're wrong in the past is it?

No, we don't need police patrols or the employers taking some responsibility. Just let nearby residential streets be turned into staff car parks after midnight and you've solved the problem at a fraction of the cost.
