A 17-year-old boy has been arrested after a jogger was sexually assaulted in a park.

The victim was running through Riverside Park in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire when she was grabbed from behind on Friday at 09:00 BST.

The teenager, from Huntington, has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and released on police bail until 18 August.

The woman, in her 30s, described her attacker as Asian with an English accent and in his late teens.
