The incident occurred on the 18th May at around 3pm. The 19-year-old woman was walking on London Road when Susorovs grabbed her and raped her in a nearby wooded area.

Within two hours of the incident report, Officers had arrested Susorovs on suspicion of the offence.

The victim has shown incredible strength from the beginning. She was able to give a detailed description of Susorovs, which was crucial. Officers were sent to the area where they quickly identified the scene and began a search for the offender. Susorovs was very quickly identified and apprehended after he made an attempt to flee from officers.
