A man is in custody following a sex attack on a young woman last Thursday.

The 20-year-old woman was walking near the disused railway line between Station Road and Hunter Street at about 7.15pm when she was approached from behind by a man who sexually assaulted her before tackling her to the ground.

The woman managed to fight off her attacker and run away.

A former University of Buckingham student, Abid Hussain, aged 26, from Rochdale, has been charged with one count of sexual assault on a female aged 13 and over.

He was remanded in custody at Aylesbury Crown Court yesterday, Tuesday, and is due to appear at the crown court on November 20.
