Teenaged girl raped in Milton Keynes

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after a teenaged girl was raped in Milton Keynes.

It happened between 10.30pm and 11.30pm on November 2nd when the 14-year-old girl, was walking from the overbridge at the top of the steps that lead down to the Conniburrow, estate on Speedwell Place.

She stopped to tie a shoelace when she heard a voice call. She saw someone who she believed she knew. When she walked towards the person she realised she did not know him and he was with another man.

One of the men pushed her and grabbed her. He then raped her while the other man stood in front of them and continued speaking to the offender. The men then laughed before she left the scene.

The man who raped the victim is white, aged approximately 30 years old, 5ft 10ins, with curly scruffy dark short hair. He had a ginger short beard and a scar on the right side of his forehead. At the time he was wearing blue jeans and a black coat.

The other man is aged approximately 30 years old, approximately 5ft 8ins to 5ft 9ins, and had a chubby build. He was wearing jogging trousers with two stripes down the legs, glasses, a chain around his neck and pumps on his feet.

Detectives are investigating the report of rape and we are appealing for any witnesses. I would like to speak to anyone who has any seen or heard anything, or who has any details, which could assist this investigation.

If you have any information which could assist, please contact police. Officers are currently providing support to the victim.

People in the area may notice an increased presence of officers in the area while we conduct our enquiries. Anyone who has any information or concerns can approach and speak to an officer.

The search of a landfill site by police looking for missing airman Corrie McKeague is set to be extended.

Suffolk Police resumed their trawl of the Milton site in Cambridgeshire on October 23, focusing on an area known as "cell 22".

It was due to last between four and six weeks but, at the end of the fifth week, police have confirmed it will continue for a few more weeks.

A spokesman said the search was "going well".

"It is recognised that whilst the designated search area remains the same, timescales are not set in stone and subject to many variables.

"It is currently anticipated that the search may progress through to early-mid December. We continue to engage with the family to keep them fully informed.”

– Suffolk Police spokesman.

Mr McKeague disappeared on a night out in Bury St Edmunds in September 2016. He was based at RAF Honington.

Police fear he may have climbed into a bin in the Horseshoe area of the town which was later collected and the waste taken to Milton.
