Appeal after serious sexual assault in Belfast

The police have launched an appeal following a report of a serious sexual assault in Belfast.

It was reported that a 32-year-old woman was the victim of an attack in the St George's Gardens area of the city on July 12.

Detective Sergeant Gary Chambers said: "We are keen to identify and speak to two males we believe may be able to assist us with our enquires. It is believed these two male witnesses were walking along St. George’s Gardens in the direction of Sandy Row before the incident occurred and had spoken to the male suspect and female victim involved in this assault. 

"We are also appealing for witnesses and would like to hear from anyone who was in the area during the early hours of Wednesday 12th July and who may have witnessed a distressed female or anything else unusual. Detectives can be contacted at Ladas Drive by calling 101, quoting reference 152 of the 12/07/17.

"Or, alternatively if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
