Teen raped near Maysfield leisure centre, Belfast

Police have appealed for information over the rape of a 16-year-old girl in central Belfast by two men wearing fancy dress costumes.

The alleged attack happened some time between 18:00 GMT and 21:00 GMT on Wednesday - Halloween night - near the now derelict Maysfield leisure centre.

The first man was wearing black and white striped trousers with a blazer and a white top hat.

The second was wearing a black suit with a black shirt.

He was described as being in his late teens, of slim build with brown eyes and short brown hair.

Police want anyone who saw two men matching the descriptions in the East Bridge Street area, or who has any other information, to contact them.
