A teenage girl was sexually assaulted in a park next to Creslow Way in Stone on Monday afternoon, police have reported.

A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said the victim was with friends in the park in Stone between about 5pm and 7pm.

“The offender then grabbed the victim around the throat and sexually assaulted her over her clothing before walking off towards the A316 Oxford Road.

“He is described as white, in his late teens, tall and slim and was wearing a black hooded top, black jeans and white trainers. The man is believed to have had a local accent,” he added.
