Detectives hunt rape suspect
7:20am Monday 27th August 2012 in Local news
DETECTIVES are trying to trace this man in connection with a rape allegation.
An incident happened in Warley Hill, Brentwood, when a 32-year-old Chinese woman was allegedly sexually assaulted in a flat above the Happy Garden Chinese Takeaway.
The incident happened in the early hours of Tuesday, April 24, and police released details this week.
Det Con Nigel Garwood said: “The language barrier between ourselves and the victim has led to this investigation being drawn-out, but we have now got somewhere.
“We have a suspect and we need people to help us arrest him so we can put the allegations made, to him.”
The man is believed to be 37-year-old Cheng He, of no fixed address.
Anyone with information is urged to contact detectives at Brentwood’s sexual offences investigation team on 101.
