Created on 22/07/2013 @ 16:55


A manhunt has begun after a young woman was allegedly raped in Welshpool town centre in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Police say a young woman was attacked in an alleyway, believed to be Bear Passage next to the now closed Signatures pub, between 2.55-3.10am.

Detective Inspector Diane Davies said: “A team of Detectives supported by local officers and force assets are investigating the offence.  At this time, priority lines of enquiry include identifying and securing CCTV images, forensic examinations and locating people who have significant information; some of whom may not know that they do.”

Police would like to hear from anyone who was in Broad Street or High Street between 2.45am and 3.15am on Sunday.

Bear Passage was taped off on Sunday morning and a large police presence was seen gathering evidence throughout the day.
