A woman has been raped in Redruth.

It happened in the early hours of Sunday 23rd September, after the 25 year old left the Twilight club.

She headed towards Tesco Car Park on Tolgus Hill where she saw a group of around four men and two women.

The victim witnessed an argument within this group, then left and walked through Tolgus Vean and “The Leats” which is the alleyway which connects the Tesco Car Park and the nearby school grounds.
 
It was there that she was attacked.

 

After, she made her way back to the Tesco area where it is known there were taxis and other people who had left the club.
 
Police are very keen to talk to anyone who may have been in the area at the time.
 
Officers say it is possible they may be potential witnesses or may have seen the suspects in this incident.
 
Senior Investigating Officer Detective Inspector Pete Simms said:
 
“We are appealing to anyone who may have been in the area of the Twilight Zone nightclub or the Tesco car park following the club finishing at 0300 on Sunday, 23 September to make contact with our enquiry team.
 
“We would like them to help us by giving us information about who they may have seen in the area or any untoward behaviour they may recall. 
 
“We are keen to speak to all potential witnesses who may be unaware that they hold information vital to this enquiry.
 
“Thankfully this type of crime is very rare in Devon and Cornwall and we have a team of local detectives and community officers working on this.”
