Redditch arrest by team investigating 18-year-old sex case

A man has been arrested by detectives investigating a knifepoint sexual assault on a woman in north Worcestershire 18 years ago.

West Mercia Police said their cold case review team detained a man in Redditch, Worcestershire, on suspicion of aggravated burglary.

The sexual assault happened 26 April, 1994, in Wythall.

A woman in her 20s was attacked at knifepoint as she arrived home and then sexually assaulted, police said.

A description of the attacker was released but no-one was arrested at that time, a spokesman said.
