A 14-year-old girl was sexually assaulted near a High Wycombe underpass after being separated from her friends by a group of males - prompting police to release CCTV images. 

The attack happened in Arch Way at around 6.40pm on March 3. 

A group of seven males approached two 14-year-old boys and a 14-year-old girl - who they did not know - and managed to split them up before stealing money from one of them.

They then led the girl away and sexually assaulted her near the underpass on Arch Way.

One of the group forced the girl to touch him inappropriately.

The girl managed to get away from the group and they were seen leaving the area in silver vehicle similar to a Volkswagen Touran.
