Detectives are continuing enquiries following a serious sexual assault of an 18-year-old woman in Kelty.

Around 11:15pm on Monday, 6 July, 2020, an 18-year-old woman was found in Limepark Crescent, Kelty. The woman disclosed to officers she had been attacked shortly before within a car at an unknown location in the Kelty area.

The suspect was driving a car and is described as having a tanned complexion, dark hair and a dark beard. We have no further information on the vehicle and officers are examining CCTV footage for any additional information it could provide.

Detective Inspector Kelly McEwan said: “The incident occurred between 10.55pm and 11.15pm approximately, and the victim had previously been in the area of Main Street, Kelty. I am appealing to members of the public who were in the area who may have seen something which could be significant to us.

“In particular, I would ask taxi drivers and motorists with dash cams to check their footage. It’s possible they have captured images of the vehicle which could prove vital in our enquiries. I am also appealing for the driver of a dark coloured car seen in the area of Seafar Drive, Blairadam Crescent and Limepark Crescent about 11.15pm to come forward as they may be a crucial witness. I’m aware this incident may cause concern for the local community, however, additional officers will be in the area and anyone with concerns can approach these officers.”
