Serious sex assault on Postwick farm track

Three men have been arrested after a 32-year-old woman was robbed and sexually assaulted on the outskirts of Norwich.

Police were called to the A47 in Postwick at around 5am this morning (Sunday) after reports of the attack.

The woman had accepted a lift from three men on Rouen Road in Norwich. They then drove her to a lay-by where she was attacked.

Police went to the scene and the vehicle suspected of being involved was stopped a short time later on the A1064 near Filby.

Three men, aged 22, 24, and 26, have been arrested and are currently in police custody at the Wymondham Police investigation Centre.

Two crime scene investigation vans were at the scene and were working on a concrete farm track parallel to the A47.
