Bedfordshire Police are asking people who may have been on or near Foster Hill Road on Wednesday (5 July), to contact them after two people, including a teenager, were sexually assaulted.

Police were alerted to the first incident at 12.55pm on Wednesday (5 July) when a teenager was sexually assaulted. A second report was made later that day after a woman was sexually assaulted on the same road.

Detective Sergeant Amy Hawkes, from Bedfordshire Police’s specialist Rape and Serious Sexual Offences (RASSO) team, said: “We believe these two incidents are connected and we are doing everything we can to locate the person responsible.

“We understand incidents like these are distressing to the victims, but also to our wider community, and you will see an increased presence of officers in the area conducting high visibility patrols.

“Our team of officers are working closely to support the victims, whilst continuing to progress enquiries to identify the man involved.

“We are appealing to anyone who was in this area, either on foot or travelling in a vehicle who may have had access to a dash camera that may have captured something to assist us, to get in touch as this could support our investigation.”

A dedicated team of officers are progressing the investigation and asking anyone with information to report it via the force’s online reporting centre at beds.police.uk/ro/report or by calling 101, quoting Operation Safe Space.

Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111 or visit crimestoppers-uk.org.
