Preston rape case: Teenager charged after attack

A teenager has been charged after a woman was raped in a street in Lancashire.

The 24-year-old woman was forced to the ground and attacked near a multi-storey car park in Avenham Street, Preston, on 15 August at about 04:30 BST.

The attacker ran off when the woman's shouting drew the attention of a passer-by.

An 18-year-old man has been charged with rape. He is due to appear before Preston magistrates later.
