We’re appealing for specific witnesses to come forward as part of an ongoing investigation into an assault.
A woman was assaulted at about midday on New Year’s Day in 2020, on a road/pavement in the College Way area of Bridgwater.
Investigating officer DC Catherine Davies said: “Due to new information received as part of a wider investigation, including a rape offence for which a man has been arrested, we’re now appealing for two people who may have witnessed this specific assault to come forward. The witnesses, a man and a woman, spoke to the victim and walked her home.
“If this was you, we’d ask you to come forward as soon as possible.
“We appreciate this incident happened a long time ago, but we’re hoping the fact it was on New Year’s Day in 2020 – four years ago today – will help jog memories.
“We’re ensuring the victim in this incident is being kept up to date as our investigation progresses.”
