Racegoers Lauded After Aiding Rape Victim

A group of racegoers have been commended by the Police force in Gloucestershire, after assisting their investigation into a suspected claim of rape in the Cheltenham area on Saturday.

A 26-year-old man was arrested on Sunday and a second man, aged 24, was arrested on Monday night - three days after the conclusion of the 2019 Cheltenham Festival meeting.

The pair were seized under suspicion of committing a sexual act on a woman in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The woman was befriended and taken home by the body of racegoers, who had seen her in a jittery and troubled state in the town centre.

Police had appealed for the group to come forward, who are from the county of Buckinghamshire, to get in touch to help track the alleged culprits.

Detective Inspector Claire Nutland said: "We received calls within two hours from the men who helped the woman and this is all thanks to everyone who shared our initial appeal so quickly.

"I'd like to thank the group who stopped to help, the other members of the public who called us and everyone who shared our appeal.

"Due to this joint team effort we have moved further forward with the investigation and made two arrests."

The two men have been released under investigation while inquiries continue behind the scenes.

Police are calling for any other witnesses to come forward.

This is one of the more positive stories emerging from racing recently, given the troubles racegoers have had at the racecourse setting in recent months, and the sport as a whole coming under the cosh.

There have been incidents at Haydock, Ascot and Goodwood in the last eight months, with records of fighting amongst punters, and multiple videos appearing on social media.

Examples like the Cheltenham racegoers acts proves there are good people out there to assist police with their investigations, and to prevent crime becoming commonplace in racing.

There were many stories from the Festival last week as a whole, with Bryony Frost riding her first Grade One at Cheltenham, Rachael Blackmore - another lady rider bursting onto the scene, but this unique tale involving a woman is certainly one up there to top the week.
