York schoolgirl attack: Man arrested

A man has been arrested after a 15-year-old girl was attacked as she was leaving her school in York.

The pupil at the Joseph Rowntree School, on Haxby Road, escaped unharmed after biting her attacker.

North Yorkshire Police described the incident on Friday as "frightening", and said there had been an excellent response to its appeal for information.

A 27-year-old man from York was later arrested and is being questioned by detectives.
