DETECTIVES investigating a sexual assault at a Redditch pub have appealed for witnesses to come forward.
A 24-year-old man from Redditch was arrested after an incident which took place in the women’s toilet at The Royal Enfield on Unicorn Hill at about 12.50am on Sunday, January 12.
The victim is a woman in her 20s who was out for the night with friends.
Detective Constable Sarah Richardson of North Worcestershire CID said: “The woman was followed into the toilets by a man when it happened. We know that there were other women in and around the toilets and it’s vital that they come forward and tell us what they saw or heard.
“The smallest detail could be very important to our investigation so if you know anything please get in touch.”
CCTV footage from the pub is being studied by police.
Det Con Richardson can be contacted at Redditch Police Station on the non-emergency number 101, quoting the incident reference 32-S-120114. Details may also be passed on anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
The man who was arrested has been released on police bail until February 11 pending further inquiries.
In another case, police investigating a sexual assault in Mount Pleasant, Redditch, have charged a man.
The 29-year-old man, from Redditch, has been charged with sexual assault after an incident near the Black Horse pub between 5am and 5.50am on Sunday, September 15.
He had been arrested later on the day of the incident and was charged when he answered his police bail last week.
He is due to appear before Redditch magistrates on Tuesday, January 28.
