Four men have been arrested over the savage gang rape of a teenage girl who was attacked at a secluded nature spot in Slough.
The men - aged 19, 20, and two aged 33 - were held last night in connection with the rape, which took place in woods near the Jubilee River in the Berkshire town on Friday.
The two 33-year-olds were bailed to August 3, while the two other suspects remained in police custody, Thames Valley Police said.
The 17-year-old girl was brutally attacked as she walked towards Slough high street after she had chatted with a group of men earlier in the day.
The victim started talking with one of the men and walked with him along the high street, stopping at an off licence.
The pair then walked along Spackmans Way before moving on to a footpath and into some woods near the Jubilee River.
Four other men, who were part of the earlier group, arrived at the location in a small silver car. The girl was then raped by "several of the men", police said.
Yesterday, Detective Inspector Nicola Hurdley, leading the investigation, appealed for help in identifying the men.
"This has obviously been a very traumatic incident for our victim and we are continuing to work with her to get information that will lead us to finding and arresting those responsible," she said.
She continued: "I would like to speak to anyone who may have seen these men in the Chalvey area last night, around early evening, and who may have seen them driving around in a small silver car.
"All the men are described as being Asian."
Anyone with information should contact the police on 101.
