Witnesses sought after sex attack in Colchester

Two men, who may be key witnesses to a sexual assault in Colchester, are being sought by police.

The men flagged down police in the early hours of Sunday after they came across a 17-year-old girl in distress near Vineyard Street car park.

After talking to the girl, police arrested three other men seen nearby on suspicion of sexual assault.

Officers would like the original two men to contact them again to help establish what happened.

The three arrested men, aged 22, 27 and 41, have been released on police bail until 27 July pending further inquiries.

The 17-year-old girl lives in Colchester.

Anyone with information about the assault is urged to contact Essex Police.
