Manhunt after woman raped in Sutton Coldfield

Police are still hunting a callous rapist who attacked a woman at a Sutton Coldfield park.

A major investigation is underway to find the rapist who attacked the woman on Sunday 3 October.

Specialist detectives from West Midlands Police Public Protection unit had sealed off an area of parkland behind Princess Alice Retail Park as they searched for evidence.

The crime happened around 10pm. It is thought the man was wearing a grey tracksuit.

Forensic evidence is urgently being analysed and a review of CCTV footage is being carried out.

The woman was treated in hospital for her injuries. Specialist charities are standing by ready to help her.

Detective inspector Andy McHugh is leading the investigation. He said: “We’ll be working around the clock to find this man but you can help by checking your CCTV, dashcam and doorbell footage. Look for anything that doesn’t seem right. Tell us right away if you see anything.

“Our thoughts are with the woman who is understandably extremely traumatised.”

We’ll have more officers than usual patrolling the area over the next few days.
