A 13-year-old girl was left traumatised following an alleged sexual assault on Saturday.
Police are investigating the claims after the teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was found outside Asda in Batley in hysterics, later telling officers she had been coerced into a car and molested by one of the men. At around 9pm on Saturday, a white car with two men inside pulled up alongside the girl as she walked in Bradford Road, near the Arc car wash.
Police believe the girl got into the car after speaking with the men and was driven somewhere else in Batley before the alleged sexual touching took place. Later they dropped her off near Asda in Batley, where she went to get help from the staff. The girl’s mother, who also cannot be named, said her daughter was made to smoke cannabis while in the car.
