Sex attack on girl in Redditch underpass

A 15-year-old girl was sexually assaulted by a youth in an underpass in Worcestershire while a woman with a pushchair and a couple walked by.

She had been playing with friends and was on her way home when she was attacked in the underpass, between Tesco and Coldfield Drive in Redditch, at about 1800 BST on Saturday.

She was rugby tackled to the floor.

Passersby may not have been aware anything was wrong, said police who are appealing for information.

Both the victim and the offender ran from the scene in opposite directions shortly after the woman with the pushchair and the adult couple passed by.
