Arrest after image released in Preston sex attack inquiry

An 18-year-old man has been arrested by police investigating a serious sexual assault on a woman in Preston.

The arrest follows a renewed appeal to the public and the release of a CCTV image of a man officers wanted to speak to.

The 24-year-old woman was forced to the ground and attacked near a car park on Avenham Street on 15 August.

Lancashire police said the man was detained in the Preston area after the public responded to the appeal.
