A 28 year old man from Donington has been charged with Attempt Rape, Robbery and Assault occasioning Actual Bodily Harm after a 22 year old woman was attacked on Albion Street, Spalding on the evening of Saturday 27 November 2021.
Kamil Gziut of Arnhem Way, Donington, has been remanded into custody and will appear at Lincoln Magistrates Court on Thursday 2 December 2021.
Detective Inspector Paul Coleman, who has been leading the investigation said: “The full circumstances of this case were initially unclear but it soon became apparent that this was a random attack on a stranger, which, had it not been for the quick wits of the victim, and the intervention of others could have become something more sinister.
“I want to commend the bravery of the victim in this case. We are continuing to engage and support her as this investigation moves forward. I also particularly want to thank and commend the bravery of the three young men that came to the aid of this woman. Their actions on the night and their subsequent co-operation with our investigation has played a huge part in this investigation and we are all grateful for their help.
“We have been working tirelessly in our efforts to piece together evidence, officers worked through the night to ensure that CPS were in a position to authorise the appropriate charges.
“I hope that this reassures the community that we are absolutely committed to their safety and bringing offenders to justice who would seek to harm others.
“I can confirm that this was a completely isolated incident and we are not looking for anybody else at this time.’
