A 45-year-old man has been arrested in connection with an incident where a teenage girl was sexually assaulted earlier today.

The victim, aged 15, was walking along a Redway between Bradwell and Heelands and was under a bridge when a man grabbed her from behind.

He put his hand over her mouth and touched her inappropriately. He then ran off towards the Linford Woods area.

The incident happened at around 8.15am.

The man was arrested nearby and is currently in custody at Milton Keynes police station.

Detective Inspector Nick Glister, from Milton Keynes CID, who is investigating the incident, said: “Although we have made an arrest we still need to speak to anyone who was in the area this morning who may have information that could help us progress our investigation.

“Clearly, we are in the early stages of our investigation and have only spoken to the victim briefly at this time.

“However, we feel it is important to let the community know what has happened and to appeal for any witnesses to come forward.”

Anyone with any information about this incident should contact Milton Keynes CID via the force enquiry centre on 101.
