A SHOCKING sexual assault took place near a bus stop in Kingshurst after a woman was followed home.

It happened on Dalewood Road, Kingshurst, Solihull, at around 12.30am on May 26.

Police say a woman was on her way home when she was approached by two men who then got on her bus.

A Solihull Police spokesperson said: “We are appealing for information after a sexual assault in the early hours of May 26 on Dalewood Road, Kingshurst.
