We urge anyone with information to please get in touch with Police. Police want to thank the members of the public who have come forward with information and assisted with the investigation so far.”

Detective Inspector Reeves said “our enquiries are ongoing and we are determined to hold the person(s) responsible to account.

We know there are people in the community with information related to the serious assault who are yet to come forward – we urge them to do the right thing and contact Police.”

“Anyone who withholds information from Police in relation to the ongoing investigation or is found to be assisting the primary person(s) responsible could end up facing serious charges themselves, so we would urge people to make contact with Police at the earliest opportunity and tell us what you know.”
