Yeovil town centre sex assault on woman by two men

A woman was sexually assaulted by two men as she walked in a Somerset town centre during the early hours.

She was walking along Middle Street in Yeovil when she was followed by two men and pulled into Quedam shopping centre.

Det Insp Lee Jones, of Avon and Somerset Police, said: "This was a frightening experience for the victim who was seeing friends in town."

The attack took place between 02:00 and 02:30 BST on Sunday.

"It was an unprovoked assault and we are treating the incident very seriously.

"Incidents such as this do not happen often in town but it is a reminder that we all need to think about our safety when out after dark," added Mr Jones.
