Alert message sent 12/06/2020 11:00:00

Information sent on behalf of Gloucestershire Constabulary


Investigating officers want to speak to occupants of a camper van, Land Rover and others listed below who may have information, can you help?

Investigating officers are still trying to identify a number of people they are keen to speak with in connection with an incident in Chalford last week.

Following information received by members of the public after previous appeals, we're keen to identify the following people as they may have information which could help the investigation – they are not being treated as suspects:

- Occupant(s) of a green or grey Land Rover parked up in the area at the time
- Occupant(s) of a camper van in the area at the time - it was parked with someone out of the vehicle
- A woman walking with a pushchair
- A man walking a dog, believed to be an Alsatian or similar breed
- Two women walking together – believed to be aged over 50, one was wearing a hat and one was wearing a scarf
- A woman playing with a child in water at about 4.30pm

The incident happened around 6pm last Tuesday, 2 June when a girl had been jogging on a lane which runs alongside the Thames and Severn Canal by Three Groves Wood.

It is alleged she was grabbed by a man who was described as being white, of a stocky build, aged in his 30s or 40s, had dark stubbly hair which was balding and he also had dark facial hair.

He was wearing blue rubber gloves, a grey hooded top with black writing and black jogging bottoms.

Investigating officers are keen to hear from those listed as they may have information which could help the investigation.

They're asked to call police on 101 and quote incident 450 of 2 June or submit information online through the 'update a crime' form on our website: https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/cor/tell-us-about-existing-case-report/

Thank you to everyone who has already called us with information following previous appeals - anyone else who has not yet spoken to police and saw the man described either on the day or previously in the area is asked to come forward.

On Monday (8 June) a 36-year-old man from Stroud appeared at Cheltenham Magistrates’ Court charged with one count of kidnap. He was remanded in custody to next appear at Gloucester Crown Court on 6 July.
