A woman has claimed that she was sexually assaulted at the same part of a beach a teenage girl was allegedly raped at during the weekend.

Dorset Police confirmed on Wednesday that a 15-year-old girl reported she was raped while swimming in the sea at Bournemouth on Sunday, July 18.

And now following the shocking news of the incident, a woman reportedly posted on social media claiming she was a victim of being groped in the sea off Bournemouth a few weeks before.

According to the Daily Mail, she wrote: "I went a few weeks back and everyone was groping me in the water.

"There was hundreds of people and it was people passing me by in the water so I couldn't really get a good look at them.

"I just kept swimming to other areas. It happened everywhere though and I'm fine."

The police released an appeal for witnesses to the rape of the 15-year-old girl and revealed the victim was with her friends playing with a ball when it landed in front of a teenage boy on Sunday.

The boy eventually threw it back to one of the group and then began talking to the victim, before pulling her out deeper into the sea where it is reported that he raped her.

A release by Dorset Police said: "The offender told the victim that he was 17 years old and was travelling to Birmingham.

"He is described as possibly of Pakistani descent and with tanned skin, between five feet and five feet seven inches tall and of a thin but muscular build with short dark hair that was pushed back and looked freshly trimmed."

He was wearing black or grey swimming shorts, the statement added.

Detective Inspector Wayne Seymour, of the Major Crime Investigation Team, said: “A full investigation is underway into this incident and we are continuing to support the victim while we carry out enquiries.

“I know that the beach was very busy on the day of the incident so I am appealing to anyone who was in the area and may have witnessed what happened to please come forward.

“Also, I would urge anyone who was on the beach in the vicinity of the Oceanarium to check any photographs or video footage taken to see if they have captured anything of relevance.

“I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who recognises the boy from the description given or may have seen him on the beach on Sunday 18 July.

“This incident will understandably cause concern for the wider community and we would like to remind the public that officers from the local neighbourhood policing team will be carrying out patrols in the area and can be approached with any concerns."
