Woman sexually assaulted by two men on her way home in York
A woman was sexually assaulted by two men as she walked home in York.
Between 2am and 2.30am on Sunday (20 June) the victim was approached by a man on the pedestrian crossing near to Dominic Pizza on Lawrence Street.
He struck up a conversation with her.
They were joined a short time later by another man who continued to walk along Lawrence Street with them before they turned off to walk along the path at the side of St Lawrence Church grounds.
The woman was then sexually assaulted but managed to run off from the men before coming across a group of people who walked her home.
Police are now appealing to motorists who were travelling along Lawrence Street in the early hours of Sunday to contact them, along with a group of people who walked the victim home.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “There were numerous vehicles travelling along the road at the time and officers are appealing to motorists to contact them who may have any dashcam footage of the woman and one or both of the men, walking along Lawrence Street towards James Street.”
The men were both wearing jeans and dark coloured jackets and the victim was wearing a brown fleece style jacket.
Officers are also appealing to the group of people who assisted the woman and walked her home to contact them.
Anyone who can assist the investigation is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police.
