Three Men Arrested on Suspicion of Rape

Officers investigating the rape of a woman in Henley-on-Thames have arrested three men.

Two men, aged 23 and 24, from Bedford and a 26-year-old man from Loughborough have all been arrested on suspicion of rape in connection with this incident. They have been released under investigation.

Between 12am and 2.30am on Sunday, 2 July, the victim, a woman aged in her twenties, left the Chinawhite enclosure at the Henley Regatta with a party of people whom she had met there.

She walked to a residential street in the Harpsden Road and Reading Road area of the town to a car where she was subsequently raped outside the vehicle. The three men then left in the vehicle.

A member of the public located the victim near the Three Horseshoes public house in Reading Road shortly before 2.30am and called police.

The three people in the CCTV image issued yesterday as part of Thames Valley Police witness appeal have been identified and spoken to and we are no longer appealing for them to come forward.

Detective Inspector Ali Driver, from Oxfordshire Force CID, said: “The victim is being supported by specially-trained officers at this time.

“If you have any information about this incident, please come forward and speak to officers as this could assist with our investigation.”
