Police are trying to trace the occupants of a white Volkswagen Golf which was seen driving in Watford, as they may have information which could assist an ongoing investigation.
Detectives are currently investigating a report that two teenage girls, aged under 18, were sexually assaulted at an address in the town on Tuesday, August 16.
After leaving the address, one of the victims was reportedly seen talking to the occupants of a white VW Golf in Cuffley Avenue, before a member of the public came to assist her. The Golf, which contained three males was then driven off in the direction of Garston Lane.
A 56-year-old man from Watford has been arrested in connection with the investigation and has been released on police bail while enquiries continue.
Detective Constable Ayodeji Afolabi, who is investigating, said: “Enquiries are continuing at this time and an arrest has been made in connection with the sexual assaults. The victims are receiving support from specialist officers.
“As part of our investigation, we’re keen to trace the occupants of the VW Golf, as they may be key witnesses and could have information to assist us. If you remember speaking with a female in the area around this time, please get in touch.”
