Girl raped in Carterton after man offers her lift home

A 15-year-old girl has been raped by a man who told her he knew her and offered to drive her home after a night out in Oxfordshire.

The teenager was walking in Shilton Park, Carterton, in the early hours of Saturday when she was approached by the man driving a small silver car.

He drove her to an unknown location where he raped her.

The girl reported the attack to police on Monday afternoon and police have appealed for witnesses.

The girl was attacked sometime between 02:00 and 04:00 BST.

Det Sgt Jim Holmes, of Thames Valley Police, said: "This is clearly a very concerning incident.

"We are supporting the victim in every way we can.

"I am appealing for anyone who was in the Carterton area in the early hours of Saturday morning to come forward if they saw the victim, or the car described, either prior to the incident or from 2am onwards."
