Sex assault: boy on bail

AN investigation into an alleged sexual assault by a 13-year-old boy in Great Cornard is continuing.

Police were called to an alleyway between houses in Minsmere Way and Rede Way after reports of a sexual assault on March 8.

Officers subsequently arrested a teenager from Great Cornard on suspicion of sexual assault and took him to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning, before he was later released on bailed.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Police said the boy returned to the centre on Wednesday when he had his bailed extended until May 20.

She said the investigation continued “pending further inquiries”.
