"The police wouldn't really tell us anything. All they told us was that a prostitute had been attacked during the night.

"They said that she was shaken but not badly hurt. But they wouldn't tell us anything more than that.

"It's very rare for something like this to happen around here but it's very shocking to see."

No confirmed details have been released as of yet by South Yorkshire Police after being approached by The Star for comment.
