A 15-year-old boy has been handed a four-year custodial sentence for raping a 10-year-old girl in broad daylight in Shrewsbury.
The offender admitted one charge of rape and another of attempted rape.
Shrewsbury Crown Court heard how the youth had followed and approached the girl as she walked along St Michael's Street on the afternoon of Friday 11 April.
He persuaded her to help search for something he claimed to have lost, and lured her into an isolated location on disused land behind a car wash. It was here the offences took place.
This was an extremely disturbing case, involving a little girl of just 10 years. It quickly became apparent that her assailant was also fairly young, probably someone of secondary school age.
I am pleased to say we were able to arrest the perpetrator relatively quickly once the incident had been reported. He was a dangerous individual and fortunately, was identified and arrested before posing any further risk to the public. It also allowed for the effective recovery of vital evidence.
West Mercia Police have also praised the public for their help in the quick arrest of the teenage offender.
Our prime suspect was caught on CCTV cameras carrying a fishing rod and fishing tackle box which made him conspicuous and we received a number of calls from people who had seen him at the relevant time...
There was an excellent response to our appeals for information, from both pedestrians and passing motorists. Their evidence played a big part in enabling an early arrest and I am very grateful to everyone who came forward.
