Thames Valley Police have now arrested a man in connection with the rape of a woman in Milton Keynes last Saturday.

A 29 year old man from the town was picked up by police last night and is currently being questioned. 

Between 3.30am and 4am last Saturday morning, a 32 year old on her way home after a night out was walking from Xscape towards Fishermead looking for a taxi to take her home. 

A car stopped and she got in the front passenger seat, believing it to be a taxi. 

The driver then took her to an area she thought was a car park near Lingford Wood where she was attacked before he dropped her near her home. 

Police have been urging people to take extra care when on a night out in the town.
