Sydenham bypass attack: Woman raped in east Belfast

Police are investigating a report of a woman being raped in the Sydenham bypass area of east Belfast at the weekend.

A woman reported that she was attacked by a man on Saturday evening between 10pm and 11pm.

The man approached the woman who was walking country-bound along the Sydenham Bypass, between Dee Street and Belfast City Airport.

He was driving a dark-coloured car which made off along the bypass in the direction of Holywood following the attack. He was described as being aged in his 30s and was wearing a dark coloured hooded top with the hood up.

Detective Inspector Zoe McKee is appealing for anyone who noticed this vehicle or observed any suspicious activity on the country-bound lane of the bypass on Saturday night or anyone with any information to contact detectives at Ladas Drive on 101.

Information can also be given anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
