Main article content
Officers are issuing an efit of a rapist who attacked a woman in Highnam in August this year (2022) in the hope that the public can identify him.
At around 4.30pm on Sunday 21 August a man in a white van pulled over into a gravel layby on Two Mile Lane in Highnam and approached a woman.
He pushed her to the ground, sexually assaulted and raped her.
The suspect was described as a white, tanned man, aged in his mid to late 20s, with short hair.
The suspect then left the scene in the white van. Officers would like to speak to anyone who thinks they may have seen the vehicle on the A40 or B4215 between 4.30pm and 5pm that day.
Specialist officers have continued to support the victim while the investigation has progressed. Officers are now in a position to release an efit of the suspect and ask if the public can identify him.
Police are asking anyone who may recognise the man in the efit or who has any information that may help the investigation to contact police.
