Man arrested on suspicion of rape following appeal

Thursday, February 8, 2024

Over the weekend, and yesterday, we asked for your help identifying a man we wanted to speak to in connection with the rape of a 17-year-old girl in Burnley.

This afternoon, a 29-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of rape. He remains in custody.

We want to thank you for your support, and for sharing the appeal.
