The victim, a local woman aged in her early 20s, was walking home alone after a night out with friends when she was subjected to a serious assault by an unknown man.
The witnesses officers need to speak to are two men, who were in the Coney Street area at around 1am on Monday 3 March 2014, before walking along Ouse Bridge passing by Tesco Express, down the steps at the side of The Slug and Lettuce on to Kings Staith. They then walked past The Lowther public house along the River Ouse towards Blue Bridge passing St Georges Field Car Park.
The first man is described as being white and around 6ft tall. He was wearing a dark hat with a lighter coloured bobble with writing on the front. He was also wearing a hooded military style jacket, worn with the hood down and fastened to the chin, and was possibly wearing jeans.
The second man is also white and slightly shorter in height. He has short dark hair and wearing a dark waist length jacket, lighter coloured shirt, possibly jeans and dark smart shoes.
A 23-year-old man arrested in connection with the assault remains on bail while police enquiries continue.
