A 32-year-old man has been arrested following a rape in Hereford in the early hours of this morning.


At 4.20am this morning (Saturday 8 July) we received a report of a rape on Grandstand Road.  The suspect, a 32-year-old man, was quickly located and arrested on suspicion of rape.  He remains in police custody.

A cordon is currently in place at the scene on Grandstand Road while forensic investigations continue.

Detective Inspector Mel Reynolds, said “I understand that it can be concerning to see a police cordon in such a prominent area of the city, but would like to reassure the community that we are not looking for anyone else in connection with this incident and that the suspect remains in custody.

“I would also like to commend the victim on her bravery in reporting this to us so quickly, allowing us to quickly locate and arrest the suspect.

“There will be an increased police presence in the area today while our investigations continue, and if you have any concerns then please do feel free to speak to our officers.”
