Police seek two people who could provide vital Wisbech sex attack clues

DETECTIVES investigating a serious sexual assault in Wisbech are trying to trace two members of the public who were seen in the area at the time of the incident.

The assault happened in Wisbech Park shortly before 2am on Saturday August 13. The victim, a young woman, was walking through the park in Lynn Road when she was attacked. A man grabbed her before sexually assaulting her.
