Man arrested in rape case - Police statement

Thames Valley Police has arrested a 22-year-old man from Witney on suspicion of rape.

The man was arrested last night in connection with the rape of a 15-year-old girl in the early hours of last Saturday.

A 41-year-old man who was previously arrested on suspicion of rape has been released without charge.

We recognise this incident is likely to cause concern in the local community and I would like to reassure people that we have a team of detectives working on the case.

If anyone in the Carterton community has any concerns or queries, I would encourage them to speak to their neighbourhood policing team.
