Police Light - 2014-03-22

On Saturday 29th November 2014, just  before 9.45pm, a 46 year old woman was walking in Cressex Road, near the junction with Limmer Lane, when a white van pulled up next to her.

The driver of the van asked the woman if she wanted a lift. The woman declined and continued to walk along the road.

She was then approached from behind and a man attempted to pull her backwards. The victim shouted out and struggled free and ran into Booker Place. The van then drove off towards Lane End.

The van is described as being the size of a Ford Transit, white in colour. It is believed to have three large red letters on the side, around 2ft in size, with smaller blue writing underneath.

The offender is described as being a white male in his thirties and of medium build. He was wearing dark clothing.

Det Con Matt Kent from Wycombe Force CID said: Clearly the victim was left very shaken by what happened to her.

We have a lot of work going on to locate this offender, but we still need to hear from anyone who may have seen a van like this acting suspiciously in this area or witnessed the incident.

Officers regularly patrol this area and will continue to do so. If you have any concerns at all, please don’t hesitate to approach them.

Thames Valley Police are appealing for anyone with information on this incident that could help with their enquiries to contact Thames Valley Police via the 24-hour Police Enquiry Centre on 101.
