Police have arrested six men following a weekend attack in Hendon which left a 26-year-old woman waking in a strange house with cuts and bruises.

It happened overnight on Saturday and Sunday (September 3 and 4) at a house in Peel Street.

The woman, who had been in the city centre in Sunderland on Saturday night believes her drink may have been spiked.

The six men who have been arrested are in police custody.

We know the woman had been in the city centre on Saturday night before waking up in a strange address in Peel Street with cuts and bruises.

She managed to leave the house and get to a family members home at around 5am on Sunday morning.

The victim believes her drink may have been spiked.

This is obviously a very serious incident and something we know the local community will be concerned about and we will have officers on patrol to offer reassurance to anyone who may be concerned and answer any queries they may have.

If anyone has any information they think may be useful to our investigation then I would ask them to get in contact with us.
