A teenager will appear in court in connection with the rape of a woman in Fife earlier this year.

Police confirmed a 14-year-old boy has been charged after the 20-year-old woman was allegedly threatened with a knife and attacked at an area of wasteland in Methil at around 8pm on January 29.

The teenager will appear before Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court on Friday.

Detective Inspector Kelly McEwan, of Fife’s public protection unit, said: “This has been a complex investigation and we’ve been committed to conducting thorough and extensive inquiries since this was reported.
