FORENSIC investigations are continuing as police try to trace a man suspected of raping a woman as she walked home from a night out in Gloucester on Saturday.

Door-to-door inquiries and an examination of the scene have taken place after the serious sexual assault in Trier Way at around 3am.

The 29-year-old had been on a night out in Liquid nightclub and was approached by the man as she sat down in a porch area.

He is described as black, aged between 20 and 30, of medium build and was wearing a white shirt.

Police are examining CCTV footage that may have captured the attack or the moments leading up to it.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 quoting incident 230 of November 10.

    See where your coming from but if it were voluntary only the law abiding would register.

    Unfortunately, nearly all rapists claim that the victim consented; and in most cases, even when the victim didn't know the attacker, the jury fails to convict.

    Let's start a voluntary one and prove average people got nothing to hide. I am up for it. Are you?

    IsitJimKerr - for those of us with nothing to hide, that makes sense. Sadly it will never happen, as the civil liberties advocates will never allow it to happen. What it needs is a Home Secretary - backed by a united parliament, on all sides - to tell the advocates to shut up and see that the overwhelming law-abiding population would probably support it. Knowing that your DNA was on file would (in theory) stop a lot of would-be criminals from going through with their intended acts, plus would help clear up quite a few historic unsolved cases too. This attacker needs taking off the streets ASAP before he does it again, which he will eventually having done it once (and maybe more). Then he needs throwing in a very deep & dark hole, and then forgetting about, for ever.

    The sooner EVERYONE is on the national DNA bank the better. This would stop opportunist rapists, and would allow people such as this poor girl, the right to a violence free society. Hope the **** is caught, soon.
