There has been an arrest of a man in Surrey after a teenager was allegedly dragged from her local Pizza Hut, stabbed in the stomach and raped last night.

Police are investigating the incident after the 17-year-old girl was physically dragged from the Epsom Pizza Hut branch yesterday and attacked by a man late last night.

Surrey Police were called to the incident just after 10.30pm, when they immediately began searching for the girl in the local area.

A 32-year-old man was arrested in a nearby park before the girl was found nearby with a stab wound to her stomach. She was then taken to St George's Hospital in Tooting in a serious condition.

The suspect was arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm, rape, kidnap and attempted murder. Detective Inspector Nick Chambers commented "This was clearly a very serious incident where a young woman has been subjected to an horrific ordeal and we are in the process of carrying out a thorough and detailed investigation to establish what happened. This appears to have been a violent and pre-planned attack which took place in a very public location in the centre of Epsom".

He also added "A member of staff at Pizza Hut tried to intervene when the man entered the restaurant and suffered injuries to his arm as a result but fortunately his injuries are not believed to be serious".

Anyone with information is being urged to contact Surrey Police on 101, quoting reference number 45160051625.
