Detective Superintendent Stewart Gull, who is in charge of Crime Services at SoJP said: “As we approach the three-week anniversary of this reported attack, detectives continue to work hard pursuing a range of enquiries.

“In the absence of any clear suspect, this is by its nature time-consuming work – following every lead in minute detail and visiting and assessing a range of identified persons of interest.

“The response from the public has been significant and very helpful - we’re extremely thankful for the community support we’ve received. This will take time but please rest assured that we continue to do everything that we can to solve this case.”

Anybody who knows the owner of the vehicle, recognises the man in the e-fit or who was in the Gorey Common area between 11.30pm and 12.30am on Halloween night (31 October) and hasn’t yet been in touch, is asked to call police on 612214 / 612612 or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
