Hyde Park sex attack

A 21-year-old female was dragged into car park along Hyde Park Road in a horrific sex attack last night.

At around 4am this morning, the unidentified female heard footsteps behind her, before being attacked near the Woodsley Road junction.

Det Insp Ian Lawrence, from Leeds District CID, said: “The victim was then dragged into a nearby car park where she was subjected to a sexual assault, before she screamed and the suspect fled on foot in the direction of Burley Road.”

The attacker is said to be around 25-35 years old, with either light blonde or ginger hair spiked up at the front.

He was reportedly wearing dark shoes, light blue jeans and a dark top.

Patrols have now been increased in the area.

The police are also appealing for anyone with information relating to the case to contact them on the Leeds CID line via 101.
