Teenager raped after birthday party in Milton Keynes

A 17-year-old girl was pushed into a car and raped after meeting a man at a birthday party in Milton Keynes.

Police are appealing for witnesses after the attack on Saturday at 22:50 BST in the Monkston area of the town.

Thames Valley Police said the girl met the attacker at a party at a house in Welbeck Close.

She went outside the property with him, where he pushed her into a dark-coloured estate car and drove her a short distance before raping her.

She found help from another couple, who are believed to be local and who helped her get home.

'Traumatised and distraught'

Police officers have urged this couple to come forward.

The offender is described as black, in his late 20s, about 5ft 6in (1.68m) to 5ft 7in (1.7m) tall, muscular, with short, dark, straight hair.

He was wearing a navy blue T-shirt, dark jeans and a black watch with a large face.

Det Insp Dave Dachtler said: "The victim has obviously been left traumatised and extremely distraught by the incident.

"There were a number of people at the party and it seems some of them may have travelled from London to attend.

"I would urge anyone who was at the party and has not yet spoken to police, or who saw a dark coloured estate car in the area on Saturday night, to contact Thames Valley police ."
