Press release   •   May 26, 2019 21:37 BST

The victim, a young girl, left a party in Westhall Road at around 11:30pm believing her mother to be waiting for her outside – this was not the case and this is when an unknown male assaulted her.

Following the assault she was taken home by two members of the public, a male and a female, who were passing by.

Enquiries are ongoing at this time, but we need the public’s help, in order to obtain more information and ultimately find the person responsible.

Detective Sergeant Gill De’Voreaux from Surrey Police’s Safeguarding Investigation Unit said: “The victim has been through a horrendous ordeal which we are taking extremely seriously. She is being supported by specialist officers.

“If you were in the Westhall Road area between 11pm on 25 May and 12:30am the following morning and saw anything suspicious, or anyone behaving in an unusual manner that may be linked to this incident, please contact us on 101 with the reference PR/P19117103.”
