PC Jasbir Pawar, who is investigating, said: "Firstly, I'd like to say that this is not being treated as a random attack, and the two men are believed to be known to each other.

"Obviously, this is still a very serious offence, which has left the victim understandably shaken up.

"If you were in the area around the times specified, and believe you may have witnessed the incident taking place or have information you think could assist our investigation, please get in touch."

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Pawar directly via email at jasbir.pawar@herts.pnn.police.uk.
