Police have returned to the scene of a sexual assault in Devon a week ago in the hope members of the public may be able to help their investigation.

Two 14-year-olds were jogging on a cycle path in Lucas Lane, St Judes, Plymouth, on 26 April when they were threatened with a knife and assaulted.

A female cyclist who tried to help the girls was also sexually assaulted. The attacker was chased off by two men.

Officers spoke to passers-by between 1930 and 2115 BST.

Only by matching up everyone's account can we put together a kind of "storyboard"
Det Insp Mike Cooper

Det Insp Mike Cooper said they needed the help of everyone who had been in the area on the night of the attack.

"It is possible that another witness may have seen them and only by matching up everyone's account can we put together a kind of "storyboard" of people's movement that evening," he said.

Police have made two arrests in connection with the incident. A 25-year-old was released without charge and a 24-year-old man was released on bail until 9 June.

"The news of the arrests should not put anyone off from coming forward and information can always be passed to Crimestoppers anonymously," Det Insp Cooper said.
