Witness appeal after Manor Park 'assault'By Amy Taylor
February 25, 2013
WITNESSES are being urged to come forward to help investigate an alleged sexual assault in Manor Park on Friday night (February 22).
A 25-year-old woman from Surrey reported the crime to police on Saturday morning, telling officers she was assaulted between 9pm and 11.30pm the night before.
Detectives are continuing to investigate and would like to hear from anyone who was in the Manor Park area on Friday night who may have seen something suspicious.
The park was cordoned off on Saturday to protect the scene early in the morning, but is now fully open again.
Aldershot Police confirmed on Saturday through their Twitter account that a report had been received and was being looked into.
Several rumours surfaced on social media sites of a body being found in the duck pond, but officers were quick to correct these.
They thanked the public for their "understanding and support" in co-operating with the cordons, particularly on an Aldershot Town match day when the streets and pubs nearby were busy, and for neighbours' kindness in supplying cups of tea.
Anyone with information is asked to call Aldershot Police on 101 quoting reference number 44130069589, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
