A 25-year-old man has been arrested in connection to a recent sexual assault in a Southampton park during the early hours of Tuesday morning.
The 19-year-old female victim was rugby tackled and sexually assaulted in nearby bushes as she made her way home from a night out in the area on Tuesday 29th May. The incident took place in Palmerston Park, a popular green area in the city.
Officers have confirmed that a second attack took place early this morning in the Bedford Place area, a popular venue for students.
These attacks have come just days after a 24-year-old woman was sexually assaulted near Mount Pleasant Road during the early hours of the morning on Sunday 27th May, by a man she had met that evening in the Dungeon Nightclub in Bevois Valley. A 23-year-old man is currently on bail for this incident as further enquiries are made.
Anybody with information should contact Southampton Police Station on 101 as soon as possible.
