Essex Police are appealing for witnesses following reports a woman was raped in Clacton.

The incident happened shortly after 8.15pm on Saturday, November 17, with reports a man had raped a woman, aged in her 20s, in a field in Legerton Drive.

Senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Truss, said: “The victim is being supported by specialist officers and we are continuing our enquiries to identify the man responsible.

“She has been able to tell us he was wearing a black hoody, so I am appealing for anyone who was in the area at the time who saw a man in a black hooded top to please get in touch.”

Anyone with information that could assist with the investigation is asked to call 101 quoting incident 1263 of November 17.
