DETECTIVES are hunting a rapist who struck near army married quarters at Aldershot.

His victim was a 20-year-old woman who was walking to army barracks after a night out with friends.

During the attack she was dragged on to a grassy area between Ordnance Road and the married quarters.

She tried to fight off the man during the incident which happened between 10.30pm and 11.30pm on Friday 26 April.

The distraught woman reported the incident four days later.

Detectives want to hear from anyone, including motorists, who was in Ordnance Road at the time of the assault.

They also believe families living in houses which back on to Casino Close may have useful information.

It is believed they could have been alerted by what officers describe as an "angry confrontation" between the pair.

The rapist is described as being of medium build, 5ft 8in tall and wearing a beige baseball cap and light coloured sports coat or jacket.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Aldershot CID on 0845 045 45 45.
