A teenager has admitted raping a woman on Lincoln’s South Common, in July.
The 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at Lincoln Crown Court, today (September 4).
He admitted charges of rape, assault by penetration, and sexual assault on a woman, on July 21.
He also admitted a charge of assault with intent to commit a sexual offence, relating to another woman, on the same day.
The male was arrested on South Common on July 22, after we had stepped up patrols in the area.
He is due to appear at the same court on November 4, for sentencing. The teenager was told today that he should expect a custodial sentence.
Police are still appealing for the victims of two other sexual assaults in the South Common area to come forward.
The first incident was reported to us on July 5 at 7.38pm by a dog walker who said she had found a distressed girl who claimed to have been “touched” by a man.
The victim is described as being aged in her teens, tanned complexion with blond hair, wearing a pink sleeveless t-shirt and light blue ripped jeans. She had a red mountain bike with her.
The second incident was reported at 6.59pm on July 16. In this case a dog walker witnessed a man possibly assaulting a woman on the South Common. The woman was white, believed to be in her 20s with long dark hair.
She was wearing multi coloured yoga pants and a black cardigan. Her sunglasses were broken during the incident.
