Detectives are appealing for information after a woman was sexually assaulted in Houghton Regis.
The attack happened at around 8.45pm yesterday (Thursday) whilst the victim was walking along the Busway close to Portland Ride.
Detective Sergeant Amy Hawkes, from Bedfordshire Police’s specialist Rape and Serious Sexual Offences (RASSO) team, said: “This was an unprovoked attack which left the victim understandably distressed.
“Our team of officers are working closely to support the victim, whilst progressing enquiries to identify the man involved.
"We believe a group of people stopped to help the victim and we would very much like to hear from them.
“We are appealing to anyone who was in this area, either on foot or travelling in a vehicle who may have had access to a dash camera and may have recorded anyone in the area, to get in touch as this could assist us with our investigation.”
