Woman subjected to serious sexual assault in car in Kelty

Police are investigating after an 18-year-old woman was subjected to a serious sexual assault in a car in Kelty.

The victim was found on Limepark Crescent at around 11.15pm on Monday.

Officers say the woman told police she had been attacked within a vehicle shortly before, at an unknown location in the Kelty area.

The suspect, who was driving a car, is described as having a tanned complexion, dark hair and a dark beard. Police say they 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 dashcams 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."

Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland via 101, quoting incident number 4470 of July 6. Alternatively, people can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be given anonymously.
