There have been a number of serious sexual offences in Doncaster in recent weeks, including a man who drove up alongside a shocked dog walker in Wheatley over the weekend and exposed himself before carrying out a sex act in front of the woman.

On August 1, an 18-year-old woman was attacked in Armthorpe Road near to Doncaster Royal Infirmary. A man has appeared in court charged with attempted rape.

And on July 14, a man was arrested after the attempted rape of a 17-year-old girl in Elmfield Park in broad daylight while in April, a woman was raped in a churchyard in Wheatley.

It is understood that the incidents are not linked.

Anyone with information about any of the attacks can contact South Yorkshire Police with details on 101.
