Detectives from PSNI’s Rape Crime Unit (RCU) are appealing for information in relation to the report of a serious sexual assault that occurred in the early hours of Thursday.

RCU Detective Inspector Adrian Brown said: “We have received the report that a 17-year-old female was seriously sexually assaulted by two males in a car park in the Dunluce Road area of Portrush, sometime between 1.30am and 2am.

“The two males made off when another female, unknown to the injured party, shouted at them. This female was wearing a red dress and helped her onto a bus marked “DC Bus”. I would appeal to this female to come forward and contact me to assist with the investigation.”

DI Brown added: “I would also appeal to anyone who knows anything about this incident to contact us on the non emergency number 101. Or if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
