POLICE have been conducting night patrols in a community after claims a woman was the victim of a serious sexual assault.
As the Star reported last week, the woman was walking home on Parr Stocks Road around 9.15pm on Saturday January 14 when she was approached by a man.
She was taken to a lawn between the property where the former Parr Stocks fire station stood and Discount Motor Parts where the alleged crime took place.
After the incident, special officers could be seen conducting extensive forensic, door-to-door, video and witness investigations at the crime scene.
A mobile police station was set up in the area last week and officials released a series of images showing patrols taking place in the area.

Officials said they were responding to the serious incident and known places for antisocial behavior.
In a statement released to the Star last week, Detective Chief Inspector Paul Parry said: “The victim is being assisted by specially trained officers while this investigation continues.
“We understand the concern that such serious crimes raise in the community and I want to reassure people that we are looking at all the evidence we can to determine what happened.
“I would continue to ask that anyone who lives nearby and has CCTV or doorbell footage at home check their devices between 9pm and 9.30pm on Saturday.
“Even if you were in a vehicle with a dash cam, please check. Parr Stocks Road is packed with cars and public transport, so any bus or taxi passengers may have seen something of value as well.”
