At approximately 8.25pm yesterday (Tuesday 3rd October),  29 year old woman was forced into the car of a man who was known to her outside of the Spar shop on Caerleon Road in Newport.

She was driven to a nearby house where she was allegedly sexually assaulted.

The woman is safe and is receiving specialist support.

Officers are particularly keen to speak to a lady who went into the Spar shop to ask staff to call the Police,  as we believe she could be a vital witness.
