- Girls, 14 and 15, were attacked after meeting men outside Nuneaton McDonald’s
- Police appealed for witnesses and released descriptions of suspected rapists
Two girls aged 14 and 15 were raped in parks by two men after meeting them outside a McDonald’s on Saturday evening.
The teenagers were first approached by the men outside the McDonald’s on Queens Road in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, police said.
It is believed that teenagers were separated during the course of the evening before the men attacked them individually.
One of the girls was raped in Riversley Park between 7pm and 8pm and the other girl was assaulted by the second suspect in Jubilee Park sometime before 10pm.
Police are appealing for any information or witnesses to the ‘shocking’ attacks and have released descriptions of the two suspects.

The first man is described as white and 5ft 5in tall, skinny, with tanned skin and straight black hair. He is said to have had some facial hair but not a full beard and has pierced ears with stud earrings.
He is believed to have been wearing black cap, black trousers and a black puffer coat.
The second man, also white and 5ft 5in tall, was described as being skinny with pale skin and short black curly hair.
He was wearing a black puffer coat, black Adidas tracksuit bottoms and white trainers, police said.
Detective Inspector Paul Sartoris said: ‘These were shocking incidents and were devastating for both victims who are being supported by specially trained officers.
‘While no arrests have been made, a full investigation is underway to establish the circumstances surrounding these incidents, which I recognise will cause great concern in the community.
‘The public can expect to see a heightened police presence in and around Nuneaton town centre while officers continue to conduct their enquiries. We have also increased patrols and two scene guards will remain in place over the coming days.
‘I would urge anyone who may have witnessed either incident, seen the girls and/or the two men that fit the above descriptions to please get in touch as any information you may have could really help with our investigation.
‘I would also urge anyone with dashcam footage who may have been driving close to Jubilee Park between 7pm and 10pm, or Riversley Park between 7pm and 8pm yesterday evening to also make contact with us.’
