No further action against rape suspect

NO further action will be taken against a 19-year-old Essex man arrested following a second allegation of rape at Latitude music festival which was held near Southwold, police have said.

His arrest came after a 17-year-old girl from Suffolk reported she had been attacked on Saturday, July 17.

Anne-Marie Breach, a spokeswoman for Suffolk Police said: “After a full investigation into the circumstances of the incident, the 19-year-old man will face no further action.”

However police are renewing appeals for information about the first alleged rape on a 19-year-old woman, which occurred at the festival late on July 15.

If you can help, telephone 01473 613500 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
