Swindon sex attack case dropped as complaint withdrawn

Police have dropped an investigation into a serious sexual assault on a 19-year-old woman in Swindon after the complaint was withdrawn.

Officers appealed for witnesses to the alleged attack in an alleyway in the early hours of Saturday.

"Based on the woman's account of events we are satisfied there is no threat to public safety," Wiltshire Police said.

They said they took all reports of sexual assault seriously and a full inquiry would always be carried out.
