BREAKING: Woman raped in Crystal Bar

The police are appealing for witnesses


Police have reported that a 29-year old victim was raped by an unknown person at Crystal Bar in the early hours on Sunday 7th May.

The police are working closely with the victim after finding no suspect, despite reviewing CCTV footage from inside and outside of the Carver Street Venue, and are appealing for anyone who may know anything or witnessed any suspicious behaviour to contact the police.

Detective constable Jon Kirkham released this statement:

“Since police received the allegation, we have been working closely with the victim and the nightclub to collect as much information as we can about what happened that evening.

“This has included meticulously reviewing CCTV footage from inside and outside Crystal, in an attempt to piece together the victim’s movements and also identify any suspicious activity.

“The victim is receiving support from officers and at this time is unable to provide any further information about who may have been responsible for this incident.

“We now need the public’s help to gather information about any suspicious activity they may have witnessed in Crystal that night, between 12.45am and 1.45am on Sunday 7 May. I’d also be keen to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious in the surrounding area at similar times. “
