POLICE have released fresh images of a man they’re urgently trying to speak to over an alleged rape.
Last week cops released CCTV of a man they are hunting after a woman in her 30s was raped behind a library in Hartlepool.
They have today published cleared snaps of the man in the hopes of tracking him down.
Emergency services rushed to the scene on York Road around 4.30am on Saturday April 8 after reports a woman was raped behind the library.
Cleveland Police said: “Officers are keen to trace the man in the image as he may be able to assist with enquiries. It is hoped that witnesses, or someone who knows the man, may recognise him from the new images released and come forward with information.
“Police would also like to appeal to anyone who was in the area around the library or near Loons Bar on Victoria Road around the time of the incident, as it is believed there were people in the area around the time who may be able to assist with enquiries.
“The suspect is described as around 38-years-old with blonde hair in a bun, wearing grey and black clothing. He is believed to have spoken with an Eastern European accent.
“Any witnesses or anyone who may know the identity of the person in the CCTV image, is asked to contact Cleveland Police on 101, quoting incident number 065835.”
