Appeal following sexual assaults

Dear Resident,

We’re appealing for information after a series of sexual assaults in Peterborough.

Three women were assaulted on or near the footbridge over the railway between Marholm Road, Walton, and Wedgwood Way, Bretton, between Monday 22 January and Monday last week (29 January).

All three assaults happened between 6.30am and 7.30am and are being linked.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 30s or 40s. On at least two occasions he was wearing dark clothing.

An investigation has been launched and officers have increased patrols in the area.

Sergeant Andy Gladders said: “These sexual assaults were traumatic for the victims, and I’d encourage anyone with information to come forward.

“The neighbourhood policing team are patrolling in the area and the serious crime team are following all possible lines of enquiry.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact us via our website quoting Op Kudus. Anyone without internet access should call 101.

Kind regards,


Tim Goddard

Communications officer
