Shrewsbury sex attack witness sought

Police investigating a serious sex attack on a woman in Shrewsbury are urging a potential witness to contact them again.

West Mercia Police said it is "extremely important" that they speak to a man who called them last week.

Det Con Alex Sullivan said: "He told us he had been drinking in The Crown pub."

The attack happened near the junction of the Abbey Loop road and Holywell Street in the early hours of Saturday, 25 February.

The victim, a woman aged in her 20s, was assaulted as she was walking home from a night out, police said.

Det Con Sullivan said: "A man called us last week and gave us some basic details. However, we desperately need him to call us back."
