Coventry Girl Attacked In City Wood

A Coventry teenager was attacked and indecently assaulted by a youth in a city wood.

Police are appealing for information after the 17-year-old was set upon on Sunday March 18th at about 7.15pm.

The man ran up from behind the girls and jumped on the older girl. He knocked her to the floor,  lay on top of her and then indecently assaulted her.

The girl shouted at the man and he slowly got off her. The two girls then ran off towards Tanners Lane.

He is described as a white male, aged between 16-20yrs, about 5ft 7ins, stocky build, with a local accent.
