A MAN is today being quizzed by police after being arrested over a sex attack on a teenage girl on Southampton Common.
The 31-year-old was arrested by police who raided a house in Howard Road, Shirley, early this morning.
As previously reported by the Daily Echo, the 16-year-old was subjected to the terrifying assault as she walked home.
She had parted company from her friend and was making her way along Lover’s Walk around 11.40pm on Tuesday August 20 when she was attacked.
The 31-year-old was arrested by police who executed a warrant at his home around 7.15am.
He remains in police custody in Southampton where he is being interviewed. Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101.
