Officers available at Ilkeston supermarket in connection with rape investigation in Ilkeston

Posted on 29th November 2017

Our officers will be at Morrison’s supermarket tomorrow speaking to the public after a woman was raped in Ilkeston at the weekend.

In the early hours of Sunday, November 26 a woman was walking along Queens Avenue, when she was approached by a man.

The man then dragged her across the road and she was raped.

The man was described as white, 5ft 7-8ins tall, between 35-45 years-old, of a slim build and was wearing a grey track suit.

Detective Inspector Dave Ball said: “Officers will be available to speak to the public and hand out leaflets in the foyer of Morrison’s on Nottingham Road tomorrow between 9am and 1pm.

“The response we have had from the public in the last two days while on patrol has been great. What I would ask is that if you have information and haven’t come forward yet, please get in touch.”
