Two men have been arrested after a teenage girl was raped in Chesterfield at the weekend.

Police say they understand it happened in Walton Dam between 4pm and 7pm on Saturday, June the first.

They're asking anyone who might have witnessed the attack to contact them.

Alternatively, anyone who saw two teenaged girls in the area at the time is also being encouraged to come forward.

Detective Sergeant Chris Ronayne from Derbyshire Police said:

I would like to take this opportunity to reassure the local community that we are treating this as an isolated incident and two men, aged 26 and 33, have been arrested and released on police bail in connection to the incident.

Our priority in this investigation is the wellbeing and safety of the victim and I would like to remind the public that victims of sexual offences are granted life-long anonymity. As such, anyone who names a victim in such a case could face arrest and prosecution.
