Detectives had launched an appeal yesterday (Thursday) to aid their investigation into the minutes leading up to the incident during which a girl was attacked by a man in Horse Market. Passers-by came to the girl's aid and a man was arrested.

Last night officers charged Binu Paul, 44, of King Street, Kettering, with sexual assault on a female over the age of 13. He was also charged with harassment of a second victim in Rushden, also said to have occurred on Wednesday, and a common assault on a third victim on the same day in Rushden. Paul will also face a charge of failing to supply a specimen of breath for analysis.

He will appear before magistrates in Northampton this morning (Friday, October 15).
