32 year old Owen Lawrence, of no fixed address, but formally of Lune Walk, Whitefield, has appeared before Bury Magistrates Court today charged with kidnap and sexual assault.

Police say a 35-year-old woman was dropping off her child at school at about 8.50 on Monday morning on Ribble Drive in Whitefield, when four people suddenly got into her car.

She was ordered to drive to Bolton magistrates court and was sexually assaulted. 

In an unconnected incident, later that same day another woman was also sexually assaulted at the Dragonfly pub, on Broadgate, Bolton. 
Police say no further action will be taken against two other men and a woman arrested in connection with the incident on Ribble Drive, Whitefield.
