The incident is believed to have happened at around midnight, on the Redway at the rear of Lamberts Croft near to an overbridge.

A man in his twenties was assaulted by a group of men and raped.

Cordons are in place to allow access to investigators.

“We are keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or any suspicious activity in the area, or has any other information which may assist us with our investigation.

“We appreciate that this incident is likely to cause concern in the community and we ask anyone with any concerns to contact their neighbourhood team via 101. We also take this opportunity to remind people to remain vigilant when out and about and report any suspicious activity immediately.”
