Woman kidnapped, gang-raped in broad daylight at graveyard
Police are appealing for information after a woman in her 30s was kidnapped and driven to a cemetery and gang raped in broad daylight.
The victim told police she was approached by a man in Jackson Road, Clacton, Essex, before she was hauled into his car with two other men on Sunday afternoon.
The three men then drove the woman to the St Osyth Cemetery in Clay Lane, Essex, some four miles away from where she was kidnapped.
She was then raped by the three men, sometime between 3pm and 4pm.
Police are scouring the ground for forensic evidence, while the victim is being supported by specially trained officers.
Essex Police are now appealing for any witnesses to the horrific crime.
Detective Inspector, Greg Wood, of Essex Police’s Public Protection Investigation Unit, said: “We are continuing to make extensive enquiries into this serious offence, including house to house enquiries and reviewing CCTV footage.
“We are currently treating this as an isolated incident, but we understand the community will be concerned and we have increased our patrols in Jackson Road and the Clay Lane areas as a result.”
The Police has asked for public information that could lead to the arrest of the suspects.
