Cumbria police arrest man over alleged rape

Detectives were today due to question a man on suspicion of rape.

A 22-year-old man was arrested following a claim made to police over the weekend.

Officers are investigating an allegation of rape and actual bodily harm at a caravan in Bridgefoot, Workington.

They say the alleged incident happened at about 9pm on Saturday.

Officers have already questioned the man.

He was released on bail last night and was due to be seen by officers again today.

Detectives with the Workington-based public protection unit are leading the investigation.

They have issued an appeal for a woman, believed to be friend of the alleged victim, who may hold information that can help with their inquiries to come forward.

She is said to havecollected the alleged victim in a car at Bridgefoot at around 10pm on Saturday and taken her to a property on Moorclose Road, Workington.

No further details about her – or the type of car she was travelling in – have so far been disclosed.

Police are also looking for a taxi driver who took the woman to Bridgefoot earlier in the evening before the alleged rape took place.

Officers are appealing for anyone with any information that may help the investigation to come forward.

Details can be passed by calling 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Will changes to the stop and search code increase your trust in the police?

I already trust our police to act in the best interests of the law-abiding

Don't care. I doubt stop and search is used much in Cumbria anyway

No. Who's to say the new code will be followed faithfully?
