Lincolnshire Police arrested three men after a brutal attack and sexual assault on Lincoln High Street at around 5am on Monday, December 2.
The three men, aged 42, 35 and 19 are all from Lincoln, police said.
They remain in police custody and the investigation continues.
A sexual assault victim who was attacked on a night out has spoken to The Lincolnite about her experience and said she no longer feels safe on Lincoln’s streets.
The 19-year-old, who cannot be named, said that three men approached her on the High Street before sexually touching her from behind.
Her friend, a 29-year-old man, tried to intervene but he was knocked to the floor and the men kicked him in the face and stomped on his head, causing serious facial injuries. He is now recovering.
