Hundreds of leaflets are being handed out in and around Cedar Road, Leicester, calling for the public to help with an investigation into a horrific assault.
A number of posters are also being put up in shop windows in an attempt to jog people’s memory and encourage them to come forward with information about the assault, which happened in the early hours of Friday 3 August.
The victim, a woman in her 50s, was found with serious injuries in the play park near Evington Road at around 4.45am on Friday 3 August.
The leaflets and posters have also been translated into Polish in an attempt to encourage those who may have information, but who don’t speak English, to come forward and speak to officers.
The woman, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, remains in a stable condition in hospital.
Detective Inspector Mark Sinski, from East Midlands Special Operations Unit Major Crime, is leading the investigation.
He said: “While we are continuing to pursue a number of lines of enquiry, we are still keen for anyone who may know something but has not yet spoken to us to come forward.
“Uniformed officers will be in and around Cedar Road putting up posters asking people to think back to what they witnessed in the early hours of 3 August. Hundreds of handbills, which have also been translated in order to extend our appeal to members of the Polish-speaking community, will also be handed out.
“We have already conducted house-to-house enquiries and are continuing to examine extensive CCTV footage of the area. Officers are still in the area speaking to people and gathering information that can help us piece together the events of 3 August.
“However, we will endeavour to investigate all new lines of enquiry. If you saw what happened in the early hours of that morning – or have information that you think the police need to know about – then please contact me as soon as possible.
“This was a horrific, violent attack and we need to find out who is responsible.”
Anyone with information about the attack is asked to call Leicestershire Police on 101 quoting incident 53 of 3 August 2018.
