Woman Raped near Callington

Police are hunting a rapist near Callington, as they step up patrols around the town.
It is after a young woman was attacked as she walked home from the pub.
Police think a tattoo could hold a vital clue.
The victim was walking back from Kelly Bray towards Callington on Launceston Road just after midnight the Saturday before last when she was confronted by her attacker at the Isacombe Oaks junction.
In his twenties or thirties he smelt of antiseptic or bleach and had a Celtic knot tattoo on his right hip.
He is of wiry or athletic build and taller than 5’7. He wore a slightly faded, red hooded top with a pocket at the front. The hood was up and the drawstrings were pulled tight around his face. He wore dark jeans and white trainers with a red trim - similar to a Nike tick.
Run - Get away from the attacker. Always run towards other people and busy areas. Do not head for anywhere isolated or down an alley. The attacker will want you to be alone.
Distract - Do something that distracts the attacker to allow you to get away. That might include stamping on their foot or kicking their shins. If you are worried think about having self-defence lessons.
