CCTV images have been released of a man police want to trace after a woman was raped in a car during a night out in Oxford.

The 19-year-old said she met the man, aged in his 20s, in Anubar in Park End Street before they moved on to Bridge nightclub on 22 October.

The rape took place in a car after the pair left the club in the early hours of the next day.

The man is described as black, about 5ft 8in (176cm), with short dark hair.

He was wearing a light coloured long-sleeved hooded top, jeans and trainers.

Tracing car

The woman who was raped gave police her permission to release her description in a bid to catch her attacker and trace witnesses.

Det Con Lisa Heaton said: "We believe the incident took place inside a car after they had left the club.

"The crucial thing for us now is finding out what type of car this was and where it went after they got into it.

"We would ask anyone who was in the area that evening, who remembers seeing this man with a white woman, 5ft 8in, medium build, with shoulder-length blonde hair, to contact us.

"She was wearing a distinctive pink sleeveless top with ruffles on the front, black leggings and black boots.

"She remembers feeling unwell and opening the car door to be sick in a very brightly lit area. It would have been some time between 3am and 5am."
