A teenager was the victim of a horrific gang-rape after she was ordered into a car and taken to a house where she was brutally attacked.
The 18-year-old had been walking through a busy residential area when two black cars pulled up alongside her.
The driver of one of the cars then threatened her and told her to get into the car.
She was then driven to an unknown address where police believe she was raped.
Today, detectives are hunting four Asian men, all aged in their late twenties, who were thought to be behind the vicious sex attack.
The woman, also Asian, was grabbed as she reached the junction of Mirador Crescent and Maple Crescent in Slough, Berkshire.
A black car, possibly a Vauxhall Corsa or Astra, and a black Range Rover with tinted windows pulled out of Maple Crescent and then followed the victim before the driver of the smaller car threatened her.
‘The investigation is at an early stage and we have yet to establish the address where the assault took place,’ said Detective Constable Tim Lloyd.
‘We are keen to hear from any witnesses who saw the vehicles in the area at the time. The Range Rover is described as being black with tinted windows and has very ornate alloy wheels.
‘We also want to hear from anyone who saw the victim speaking to the occupants of the car or getting into it.
‘This took place in a very busy residential area and I’m confident someone will have seen the incident or the cars in the area.’
Detective Inspector Nicky Hurdley said the woman may have been known to her attackers.
‘We are currently investigating exactly what happened to this young woman and would ask anyone with information to come forward immediately,’ she said.
‘We do not believe this was a completely random attack, and would like to reassure the local community that extra patrols are being carried out in the area to provide a visible presence and help with the investigation.
‘Members of the public are encouraged to speak to the officers about any concerns they may have.
‘This is not being linked to any other incidents.’
