8:11pm Friday 13th July 2012 in News
A 17-year-old youth from Witney has been arrested after a 15-year-old girl told police she was raped in Abingdon's multi-storey car park.
The alleged incident happened on level seven of the Charter Way car park between 4pm and 4.45pm on Tuesday, July 3.
The crime was reported on Friday, July 6, but police only released the details today when they said they needed a potential witness to come forward.
Det Sgt Darren Cartwright, from Abingdon CID, said: “Although we have made an arrest we still need to trace witnesses.
“The victim believes that she saw a woman on level seven just after the incident and I would be keen to trace her and any other witnesses.”
The youth was later released on police bail until September 9.
