Police appeal for information on alleged sexual assault
9:19am Thursday 26th September 2013 in News
POLICE are appealing for information about a former Weymouth bakery in relation to an alleged historic sexual assault.
Officers are asking for help from residents to identify the site of a former bakery on the seafront to help with an investigation into the offences, which are alleged to have happened in the 1970s.
The victim reported the offences to Avon and Somerset Police last year.
Detective Constable Celia White, from South Gloucestershire CID, said: “I would like to speak to anyone who remembers this old bakery or can help me locate a big, bald American man who used to work there.
“We believe he may be an important witness that could assist our investigation but I want to stress he was not involved in any offences.
“I know this was a long time ago but I’m hoping there is someone in Weymouth who remembers something which might help me.”
The bakery was an old red brick building with big doors.
Delivery lorries used to reverse up to the shop which made cakes, doughnuts and other products.
Officers would also like to hear from anyone with photos of the building.
Anyone who can help should contact DC Celia White from Avon and Somerset Police on 101.
