A MAN has been arrested and bailed in connection with a terrifying rape attack on a woman in Sheffield.

The 39-year-old was arrested yesterday and questioned by detectives before being released on bail pending further enquiries.

The alleged victim, aged 48, was befriended by two men during a night out at the West Street Live venue in Sheffield city centre last October.

They left the bar at 2am, and the woman was taken to a nearby address where she was repeatedly raped by both men.

She was then driven to Burngreave where she reported the incident to a local shopkeeper, who rang police.

An appeal for information prompted a number of new leads which are now being followed up by detectives.

Anyone with further information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 240 of Saturday, October 8, 2011, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
