    • The girl was walking through Houndwell Park in Southampton at around 10am 
    • Officers are looking for a white man in his 40s described as wearing shorts
    •  No one has been arrested at this time and the investigation is still ongoing

    Police have launched an investigation after a 17-year-old girl was raped in a park in broad daylight yesterday morning.

    The girl was walking through Houndwell Park in Southampton at around 10am when she was approached and raped by a man.  

    Officers are looking for a man in his 40s following the attack, which was described as taking place in a ‘widely used park’ at a ‘busy time of the day’.

    Detectives investigating say the man has been described as being white and was wearing shorts. 

    No one has been arrested at this time and the investigation is ongoing. 

    The girl reported the incident soon after and she is being supported by specially trained officers.

    Officers from Southampton Central Neighbourhood Policing Team have increased patrols the area. 

    Councillor Dave Shields, chair of Southampton Safe City Partnership, said a £550,000 fund will go into making the streets safer according to The Sun.

    He said: ‘Every effort is being made to avoid horrific incidents like the one reported.

    ‘Improved lighting and CCTV are a high priority for the police, city council and our other key partners.’

    But the city’s MP Royston Smith questioned whether enough had been done to keep parks safe. 

    He said: ‘This is a shocking incident and I can’t imagine how dreadful it is for the victim.

    ‘Over the years the council has done what it can to make our parks safer, but when an attack takes place in broad daylight the question must be, has enough been done?’ 

    Detective Inspector Matt Watson said: ‘This incident happened at a busy time of day in a widely used park that’s also a popular walk-through.

    ‘We believe there may have been a group of students in the park at around the time of the incident. Was this you? 

    ‘We would like to appeal to this group and anyone else who was in or near to the park yesterday morning to get in touch with us.

    ‘Were you in the area yesterday morning between 10am and 10.30am and did you see anyone or anything suspicious?

    ‘It’s important you get in contact with us and tell us what you know.

    ‘Officers from the Southampton Central Neighbourhood Policing Team have increased patrols in the area over the weekend. 

    ‘Please do speak to them if you have any concerns.’

    ‘If you have any information that could assist, no matter how small or insignificant you think it might be, it could really help our investigation.   

    ‘Please get in contact with us via 101 quoting 44200438513.’
