Detectives investigating the rape of a woman in Leeds have released CCTV images of two men they want to trace.

The 19-year-old victim had been on a night out in the city centre when she became separated from her friend in the early hours of Sunday, January 19.

She was approached by two men who led her down an alley where she was raped by one of the men. One of the men was described as having an Eastern European accent.

Detective Chief Inspector Jon Morgan, from West Yorkshire Police Protective Services, said: “The CCTV images are from the junction of Bond Street and Basinghall Street and it is believed that the attack took place close to that location.

“The images show two men who appear to be with the victim after the incident took place. The circumstances of this offence has meant is has taken some time for us to build up a true picture of the sequence of events.

“It may be that these men have a plausible explanation as to why they were with the victim and they may have important information that could assist the investigation.

“I would appeal for the men themselves or anyone who thinks they recognise them to contact us immediately.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact West Yorkshire Police Protective Services (Crime) via 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
