POLICE are urging a crucial witness to a rape in a Southampton park to come forward.
Officers believe that the man could hold the key to their investigation into the sex attack in Hoglands Park.
He is believed to have been with the victim outside The Edge nightclub at about 5am on September 28, just before the attack took place.
CCTV caught them walking together down St Mary’s Road on to Trinity Road shortly afterwards.
The man is described as white, in his mid-30s, about 5ft 6in and with light brown hair which was short at the sides and longer on top. He was wearing a stripy or checked shirt, and the victim told police he had a distinctive gap between his two front teeth.
The attacker has been described as being black, of large and muscular build and wearing a yellow and black cap with a yellow peak.
He was also wearing a grey hooded top and dark trousers, while he had a piercing in his left ear, halfway up the cartilage.
He is described as having a round face and a deep voice with an English accent.
Anyone with information should contact police on 101.
