Woman raped in Christmas Day attack in Sleaford

An 18-year-old woman was raped near a Lincolnshire pub during an attack in the early hours of Christmas Day.

The woman said she left the Nag's Head pub in Sleaford with a man who then punched her in the face and sexually assaulted her.

The man is described as white, about 5ft 6in (1.68m) tall, with short hair and a slim build.

Lincolnshire Police said the woman was found in a distressed state in the car park of the pub on Southgate.

The victim, who has since returned to her home outside the county, said she did not know the attacker.

Det Con Jackie Crozier said: "I would ask for witnesses who may have heard or seen the sexual assault taking place between approximately 00:45 and 02:00 hours on Sunday to contact police."
