Fresh appeal

He separated her from her friend and took her to an area of woodland within Daisy Hill Nursery where he assaulted her.

Detectives from Serious Crime Branch have launched a fresh appeal for information and are appealing to anyone who has information in relation to this attack, no matter how insignificant it may seem, to contact detectives on 028 38366274.
