A TEENAGER has been released on bail after being arrested by police in connection with the rape of a 17-year-old girl.

The girl had been out with friends and left Vita's nightclub in Sudbury some time after 11pm on Wednesday night, having earlier danced with a man.

Police said the man later spoke with her outside in North Street, and she was then raped beneath fire escape steps close to the toilets in a car park off Gaol Lane.

She pushed her attacker away before going back to the nightclub at about 1am. She alerted staff to her ordeal and the police were called.
