The attack took place at an address between Bristol Road and Seymour Road in Linden, Gloucestershire, in the early hours of Thursday morning, cops said.

The attacker is described as of slim build, around 5″8 and is thought to be aged between 25 and 30-years-old.

Investigating, sergeant Faye Satchwell-Bennett said: “This is an extremely concerning incident which will understandably cause alarm in the community.

“Officers are in the early stages of an investigation and work is ongoing, including CCTV being gathered and reviewed.


“At this stage we’re keen to hear from anyone who has any information which could assist or anyone who witnessed anything between the times of 5pm on Wednesday and 3am on Thursday.

“We’re also urging anyone who has either seen someone acting suspiciously in the area in recent days or any behaviour which they feel was suspicious to contact us.

“Those living nearby will see enhanced police patrols taking place and the police community engagement vehicle in the area and I would ask anyone who is concerned to speak to officers.

“The victim is being supported by specialist officers.”
