Police have stepped up patrols after a serious sexual assault in Stirchley, Telford on Sunday (25 June).
West Mercia Police said a woman was walking in Havenwood, Stirchley at around 9.30pm when a man approached and sexually assaulted her.
The woman, in her 20s, approached a member of the public for help, who then called police.
Detective Inspector Rob Mountford said:
I understand that news of this incident will be alarming for the local community. West Mercia Police takes incidents of this nature very seriously. A full and thorough investigation is underway and reassurance patrols are also taking place.
I would ask anyone who was in the area at the time who saw anyone acting suspiciously to contact police; the information you have could prove vital to our investigation.
