Two 16 year old boys have been arrested this afternoon in connection with the serious sexual assault incident that occurred on Fish Street in Leeds City Centre in the early hours of Monday morning. They remain in custody.
A 22-year-old woman was walking along Vicar Lane at around 1.45am when she turned into Fish Street, which is a popular cut-through to King Edward Street and Kirkgate.
At this point she was grabbed by a group of males and dragged into a nearby doorway and seriously sexually assaulted by at least one male.
The males then left the alleyway in the direction of Briggate.The woman had been at the Hi-Fi club on Central Road earlier in the evening, and on leaving the club she was approached by a group of around four males who made sexually suggestive comments towards her. The woman ignored their advances and continued walking towards Vicar Lane to get a taxi home.
