Thames Valley Police look into 1989 Reading hostel rape

Police are investigating a rape at a hostel for women in Reading in 1989.

A woman was allegedly raped by an unknown man in a bathroom at the Elizabeth Fry Bail Hostel in Coley Avenue between June and December of that year.

Thames Valley Police officers would like to speak to anyone who was staying or worked at the hostel at the time.

Det Con Steven Martin, from Reading CID, said a person fell from a window at the hostel around the same time.

He said: "At around this time at this particular bail hostel, a person fell from a first floor window and sustained serious injuries.

"I hope this information will help to jog memories."
