Detective Constable Daryl Gavin, said, “We are appealing directly to the woman to come forward because she may be able to help with our enquiries. If this is you please get in touch and speak to us – you may not have realised that something was wrong.
“We are keen to trace the woman but we are also appealing to anyone else with any information about the incident to come forward. We appreciate that this is asking people to think back over a period of a few months but even the smallest detail can be significant when piecing together a case.”
Detective Inspector Claire Jesson from Crewe Local Policing Unit, said, “I would like to reassure the local community that Incidents such as this are rare and officers are doing all they can to trace whoever is responsible.
“This appears to be an isolated incident however we would always urge people to follow basic safety advice when out and about – remain vigilant when walking alone especially at night, maintain an awareness of your surroundings and try and stick to well-lit areas.”
Anyone with information should contact Police on 101, quoting incident number 325 of June 6.
