We’re appealing for the public’s help to identify a man after a rape was reported in Bristol in the early hours of this morning (Monday 19 February).

We were called shortly after 2.48am to a report that a man had raped a woman in Castle Park.

The offender is described as white, approximately 5ft 9ins tall with short brown hair. He was wearing all black clothing.

Officers attended at the time and spoke to the victim and she is now being supported by specially trained officers from Bluestone, our specialist rape and sexual offences investigations team.

Officers remain at the scene, where a cordon is in place to allow a thorough examination to take place, and CCTV footage is being reviewed.

If you can help, please call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5224043502, or complete our online appeals form.

You can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers 100 per cent anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via their Anonymous Online Form.

No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will not go to court or have to speak to police when contacting Crimestoppers.
