Teenager raped in Slough by taxi companion

A 17-year-old girl was raped by a man she shared a taxi with.

The teenager got into the taxi with her attacker in Watford, Hertfordshire, and was driven to the Salt Hill Park area of Slough where he raped her.

Police were called just after 05:00 GMT on Sunday. Officers want to trace the driver of the silver taxi who may have vital information.

The attacker who is in his mid-30s, is about 5ft 8ins and has dark hair. He was wearing jeans and a white T-shirt.

Det Insp Nicola Denard, of Thames Valley Police, said: "This was a very nasty attack.

"I would ask for anyone who may have seen the victim and the offender within the park area in the early hours... to contact us as a matter of urgency."
