A man in his 50s was raped by a sex attacker in a black mask – with police now appealing for witnesses.

The victim was approached by two men on Somerset Avenue in Southampton on Saturday, May 22.

One of them then raped him in an overgrown area nearby.

The first man was described as white, aged between 20-30, between 6ft 1in and 6ft 2in, skinny, dressed in black with a hooded top, black mask, snood, and wearing a black rucksack.

He also spoke with a local accent, along with the second man.

Officers are now appealing for information from anyone who was in Exford Avenue or Somerset Avenue between 9.30pm and 10pm the evening of the attack.

Hampshire Police said in a statement: "Did you see anything suspicious? Did you see anyone matching the descriptions above?

"The victim is being supported by specialist officers and an investigation is underway.

"Officers are carrying out increased patrols in the area. If you have any concerns please don’t hesitate to speak to one of them.

"Anyone with information should call 101 quoting 44210198838."

Earlier this week, a twisted thug who kidnapped, tortured, and forced a man to commit depraved sex acts was jailed.

Kamil Lesiak was sentenced on Tuesday, May 25, to 18 years behind bars after being found guilty of subjecting his victim to horrific humiliation and self-degradation at Liverpool Crown Court.
