Surrey Police are appealing for witnesses regarding a serious historic sexual offence that happened in Cranleigh in 2012. 

The assault was reported in January 2020 and is alleged to have taken place on 24 December 2012 in a toilet at Cranleigh Baptist Church. 

The incident happened during an organised Christmas performance and police would like to speak to anyone who was at the church that night. 

The only description of the suspect is that he was male. 

Detective Constable Neil Palmer said:

“It has taken immense bravery for the victim to come forward and we are doing everything we can to identify the person responsible for this assault.

“We are looking to speak to anyone who was at the church that evening and may have photographs or seen something suspicious.”

If you have any information call 101 quoting reference number PR/45200006738 or you can report online.

You can also give information, 100% anonymously, to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or through their anonymous online form.

If you believe you have been the victim of an offence call police immediately on 101 or 999 in an emergency.
