A WOMAN was attacked tonight in a park. 

The victim, in her 30s, was walking in the park behind Dunstands Drive, Winnersh, shortly before 6pm tonight (November 2), when she was grabbed from behind.

The offender pulled her to the ground and attempted to remove her clothes. However, the woman's dog became aggressive and the man fled the scene.

The offender is described as having tanned skin, dark hair and is clean shaven. He may be aged in his thirties and is about 5ft 7ins tall.

He was wearing a black hooded top and black or navy jogging bottoms.

Investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Matt Stone, of Berkshire Force CID, said: “This was a very distressing and traumatic experience for the victim and she is being supported by specially trained officers at this time.

“I understand that people in the area will be very concerned about this incident, but I would like to reassure them that we have begun a full and thorough investigation.

“A scenewatch is in place at the park, and members of the public may see an increased police presence in the area while an investigation is carried out.

“I would like to hear from anyone who witnessed anything suspicious in the area at this time.

“If you have any information which you think could help our investigation, no matter how insignificant it may seem, please call the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number on 101.”
