PC Colin Johnson said: “We know that there were several people in the area at the time and I am keen to speak to anyone who was in Wisbech Town Park, visiting the hospital or any businesses or houses near to the ambulance station, between 2.25pm and 3pm, to get in touch.

“They may have been potential witnesses without realising it. I would particularly like to hear from the woman, described as an “older lady”, who walked from the park and along St Augustine’s Road at about the time the assault happened.

“Anyone who saw a man matching the description given should also call police.”
