POLICE will review security footage from Mooloolaba to try to identify a man involved in an alleged rape early yesterday morning.

A 19-year-old female, who was sitting on the beach alone after a night out with friends, was allegedly attacked about 2am.

Detectives searched the scene, just south of the Mooloolaba Surf Life Saving Club, for evidence yesterday.

Early beach goers arrived soon after sunrise to find an area from the dunes to the water sealed off by police tape and being guarded by an officer.

Scenes of crime officers had completed their inspection and the tape was removed before the red and yellow flags went up for the day.

An earlier report indicated there had been a second alleged sexual assault about 2.30am in a car park on Goonawarra Dr, although police could not confirm the attack today.

Anyone with information which could help police can contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au.
