AN 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of actual bodily harm after a 17-year-old girl was assaulted near the Hilperton Marina at Trowbridge. 

The attack took place after an altercation between the teenager and a man in the early hours of Saturday morning (15/02) on a canal boat near the marina.

She then walked along part of the towpath to the marina followed by the man who was known to her.

An 18-year-old man has since been arrested and has been released on conditional bail.

A police spokesman said: "We are looking for anyone who may have seen the couple or heard or saw anything suspicious between 2am and 4am on that day."
