An appeal for witnesses has been launched by Thames Valley Police in connection with a rape investigation in High Wycombe.

On Monday 10th August 2020, police received reports that at around 3.00pm a teenage girl had been raped in The Rye park, off London Road in High Wycombe.

Specially trained officers are currently supporting the victim and her family.

Police have arrested a 13 year old boy from Buckinghamshire on suspicion of rape. He has since been released on conditional bail.

Detective Inspector Michael Anderson from the Child Abuse Investigation Unit at Aylesbury police station, said: ‘This is naturally a distressing incident for the victim, and it will understandably cause concern in the local community.

However, I would like to re-assure members of the public that a full and thorough investigation is under way and we have made an arrest.

We believe this to be an isolated incident, with no wider risk to the public.

Anyone who has any information, or who believes that they witnessed the incident should speak to officers, or call 101, quoting reference number 43200248060.

You can also make a report online, or call the independent charity Crimestoppers 100% anonymously on 0800 555 111.
