A woman was kidnapped from outside a shop then sexually assaulted at a house in Newport, police have said.
The 29-year-old woman was allegedly “forced into [a] car” by a man she knew outside the Spar store in Caerleon Road on Tuesday evening at around 8.25pm.
A Gwent Police spokesman said the woman was then driven to a house where she was sexually assaulted. The woman is safe and is receiving specialist support, they added.
Officers are now appealing for witnesses. They say there are particularly keen to speak to a woman who went into the Spar shop to ask staff to call the police as she could be a vital witness.
They asked the woman, or anyone who was in the area and saw what happened, to contact them on 101 quoting log 487 of October 3.
