Local residents told YorkshireLive that the sight of the police cordon had caused a lot of concern among those in the area.
A spokesman for the force said: ‘Police are investigating following a report of a rape which was received at 5.45pm yesterday.
‘A scene is in place in Market Street, Wibsey while enquiries continue and an 18-year-old woman is being supported by specially trained officers.’
According to a reporter working for the Yorkshire news outlet, the alleyway runs between two houses, from Market Street and Hardy Street.
‘One woman on the Hardy Street side said all the neighbours talk a lot to each other and nobody heard, saw or knows anything about what’s happened,’ the reporter said.
Police were said to be guarding the entrance of the alleyway, with pictures showing police tape blocking it at each end.
