A 23-year-old woman was the victim of a serious sexual assault after getting out of a vehicle believed to be a taxi near a Surrey railway station.

Surrey Police said the woman had got into the people carrier, which was waiting near Camberley station, just after 03:00 GMT on Saturday.

The woman got out in Whitmoor Road, Bagshot and was assaulted by an unknown man in woodland in Connaught Park.

Police are appealing to the driver of the vehicle to come forward.

It is described as a Mercedes Vito van, which may be silver. A CCTV image of the vehicle in Knoll Road, Camberley has been released.

"A young woman has been subjected to what must have been a terrifying attack," said Det Insp Chris Goodman.

Extensive search

"It is vital we track down the people carrier which drove the victim to Whitmoor Road.

"People who were in the centre of Camberley in the late hours of Friday night or the early hours of Saturday morning might recall seeing the people carrier parked near the station."

A section of Connaught Park was cordoned off to allow officers to investigate and police carried out an extensive search of the area.

Officers say the driver of the vehicle, which had three rows of seats, may have vital information.

He is described as slim with dark hair and dark eyes.
