A TEENAGER was sexually assaulted by a group of young men in Church Crookham last week.

Between 1pm and 3pm on Thursday, February 3, police say a teenager was approached by a group of four young men on a pathway between Nepal Gardens and Naishes Lane.

The victim was sexually assaulted before the group was disturbed by a family walking towards them.

A woman helped the victim and spent five minutes with them before taking them to a safe spot.

The group of young men are described as being aged between 19 and 20 and between 5ft 11in and 6ft 1in tall.

They were all wearing light jeans, white shoes and dark hoodies.

Although the incident happened more than three weeks ago, it was only reported to officers on Friday, February 25.

Hampshire police has since launched an investigation and are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.

Officers are also keen to speak with the woman who spent time with the victim after the incident.

A police spokesman added: “Were you in the area at the time? Did you see any suspicious behaviour? Did you see a group of four young men in the area?

“Do you have any CCTV images or dash-cam footage that could help our investigation?

“Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting 44220078500.

“Alternatively go online and submit information via the following form here.”

If you’d rather not speak to police, you can also call independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
