The victim (who has since been transferred to another unnamed hospital) is in a stable condition with potentially life changing injuries.

Police believe the incident happened in the Woodlands Road area of Earlswood, near Redhill, and there will be an increased police presence in the area as officers seek to establish more details.

Detective Inspector Jackie Elkins said:


“While clearly a shocking incident, I want to be reassure the community that these men knew each other and there is no wider risk to the general public. I want to thank the local community for their support and assistance as we conduct a thorough investigation of what happened and bring those responsible to justice.

I would ask people who may know these men not to speculate publicly, but instead to contact us to help us build a picture of who they are and why this has happened.”

Anyone who has any information that could assist the investigation, either because they know the individuals involved, or because they witnessed something in the Woodlands road area of Earlswood last night, is asked to please contact Surrey Police on 101 (999 in an emergency) or http://surrey.police.uk/TellUsMore quoting reference PR/45190008252.

At about 10pm on Thursday 13 June, the woman was walking along the footpath which runs between Somerville Road and Worth Park Gardens when she was attacked by a man who raped her before making off.

He is described as white, in his forties, about 5’10”, with short dark hair including grey streaks, and a beard. He was wearing dark jeans, black shoes (not trainers) and a blue t-shirt with a logo of some kind.

Detective Inspector Karrie Bohanna of the West Sussex Safeguarding Investigations Unit said;

“We have been working with the woman, with specially trained officers, to understand the full circumstances and to ensure she has further expert support and advice.

“Our investigation is ongoing and we have been making enquiries in the area. If you were in the Pound Hill, Worth Park Gardens area at around that time on Thursday 13 June, and saw anything suspicious, please get in touch with us online by calling 101, quoting serial 810 of 16/06.

“We would particularly like to identify and contact three people who may be able to help us. Following the attack the victim went to the nearby pub, Tavern on the Green, and sought directions. She spoke with two men there, one of whom escorted here to her address.

“The third person is a woman walking nearby with a black dog about 15 minutes before the attack. The woman is described as white, about 5’7” and with long dark hair, wearing a dark jacket.

“This appears to be an isolated incident for the area and not part of any pattern. Please let us know if you can help.”
