Three arrested in connection with Henley rape


THREE people have been arrested in connection with a rape in Henley earlier this month.

Between 12am and 2.30am on Sunday, July 2, a woman aged in her twenties left the Chinawhite enclosure at the Henley Regatta with a party of people whom she had met there.

She walked to a residential street in the Harpsden Road and Reading Road area of the town to a car where she was subsequently raped outside the vehicle. Three men then left in the vehicle.

A member of the public located the victim near the Three Horseshoes public house in Reading Road shortly before 2.30am and called police.

Two men, aged 23 and 24, from Bedford and a 26-year-old man from Loughborough have all been arrested on suspicion of rape in connection with this incident. They have been released under investigation.

Detective Inspector Ali Driver, from Oxfordshire Force CID, said: “The victim is being supported by specially-trained officers at this time.

“If you have any information about this incident, please come forward and speak to officers as this could assist with our investigation.”

Last week, Thames Valley Police issued a CCTV image of three men they wanted to speak to. The three men have all been identified and spoken to, and the police are no longer appealing for them to come forward.

If you have any information relating to this case, please call 101 quoting reference ‘206 2/7’, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously.
