DYFED-POWYS Po­lice are appealing for wit­nesses to an al­leged sex­ual as­sault from 24 years ago.

The al­leged in­ci­dent took place in 1995 in a night­club in Llanelli, but was only re­ported to the po­lice in Fe­bru­ary last year.

Po­lice said it was thought that the vic­tim might have had a sub­stance placed in their drink.

De­spite the length of time that’s passed, they are hop­ing to hear from wit­nesses who could have seen some­thing sus­pi­cious in the club – the for­mer Moon­raker in Mar­ket Street.

A spokes­woman for the po­lice said: “Llanelli po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a sex­ual as­sault al­le­ga­tion dat­ing back to spring/ sum­mer of 1995 and are appealing for in­for­ma­tion. The al­le­ga­tion was re­ceived by po­lice in Fe­bru­ary, 2018.

“The male vic­tim vis­ited the Moon­raker Night­club, Mar­ket Street, Llanelli, where he met the un­known male sus­pect.

“It is be­lieved that the sus­pect placed a sub­stance into the drink of the vic­tim and it is re­ported that a wit­ness may have seen this.

“The vic­tim al­leges that he was as­saulted out­side of the night­club by the male sus­pect and dragged into a taxi.

“The sus­pect is de­scribed as a white male with fair-coloured skin, 5ft 8ins or 5ft 9in, with a chubby face, curly ginger hair, curly beard, bar­rel chested, heavy set, no glasses, aged 30 to 40 years old at the time of the in­ci­dent in 1995.”

She added: “A num­ber of in­quiries have been com­pleted and po­lice are now ask­ing for the pub­lic’s help.

“Any wit­nesses who may have seen or heard the in­ci­dent and in par­tic­u­lar door staff, taxi driv­ers and the male wit­ness who saw the sub­stance be­ing placed into the vic­tim’s drink is asked to con­tact Llanelli po­lice.”
