The victim had been drinking with friends on the evening of Friday, February 8 in the New Griffin pub on Anlaby Road when she was approached by a man who engaged her and her friends in conversation.

The man appeared to be drinking alone in the pub.

When the victim left the pub, she walked down Anlaby Road towards the city centre and it is believed the man followed her.

As the woman reached the junction of Anlaby Road and Walton Street, she entered West Park where she was allegedly attacked and raped.

Crimestoppers have described the suspect in the case as speaking with a foreign accent.

They said: "He had tanned skin, is aged in his mid-twenties and is approximately 5ft 8in to 5ft 10in tall with a proportionate build.
