A 32-year-old Poole man has been arrested and released on bail following reports of the rape of a woman in her 50s in Poole Road, Wimborne at around 11.30pm on Saturday 25 June.
An investigation into the incident was launched by detectives from the Major Crime Investigation Team (MCIT) and detective inspector Wayne Seymour, of MCIT, said: “We are continuing to investigate this incident and I would like to again appeal for any witnesses or anyone with information to please come forward.
“I particularly would like to hear from a man driving a flatbed lorry carrying vehicles who stopped to talk to the victim at around 11.15pm. Also, I am appealing for a group of six female pedestrians who were walking along Poole Road toward Merley at about 11.30pm to get in touch.
“I would also urge any motorists with dashcam who were in the vicinity, as well as residents with home CCTV systems or doorbell cameras, to please check their footage from the night for anything that might assist our enquiries.
“There continues to be an increased police presence in the area and officers can be approached by anyone with information or concerns.”
