A teenager was arrested for the sea rape of a girl on Bournemouth beach last year, police say.

The 15-year-old girl claimed she was raped in the sea after her ball landed near her alleged attacker.

Now Dorset Police say an 18-year-old has been arrested in the West Midlands on suspicion of rape.

He was released on bail after the incident that took place near the oceanarium on July 18 last year.

At the time of the alleged attack, detectives said the girl had been dragged into the sea by her attacker on a crowded day by the sea.

Police explained the victim was with her friends when her ball landed in front of the suspect, who told the girl he was traveling to Birmingham.

He then threw it back at a member of the group and began talking to the victim before reportedly dragging her deeper into the sea and raping her.

Detective Inspector Wayne Seymour, who is leading the investigation, said: “We have continued to support the victim and her family throughout this investigation and they have been kept up to date with this latest development.”
