Woman, 20, 'raped' at bus station

A woman in her 20s was allegedly raped near a bus station yesterday.

Police in west Belfast are investigating the reported sexual assault close to the station at the junction of the Falls Road and Glen Road some time between 1am and 4am.

Officers appealed for any witnesses to come forward.

SDLP councillor for the area Tim Attwood urged anyone with information about the alleged rape to contact the PSNI.

"It is shocking that a woman may have been sexually assaulted in West Belfast last night," he said.

"Woman should be able to welcome in the New Year without fear of being sexually assaulted. It is essential that the PSNI get the information to catch the alleged attacker or attackers."
