|Teenage girl raped in city park |
(1 day later)
A teenager has been raped in Botanic Gardens in south Belfast.
The 18-year-old was attacked as she walked home through the park on Saturday night at about midnight.
She had been drinking with a group of friends in the park, and as she passed the Ulster Museum, a man dragged her into the bushes and raped her.
The attacker also stole the teenager's mobile phone. A team of police officers have been searching the park for the phone and other clues.
Detectives say they want to speak to anyone who was in Botanic Gardens or walking past the Stranmillis Road entrance around the time of the attack.
