Two Reading Festival attendees have been arrested in England on suspicion of raping a woman.

A 31-year-old man and a 14-year-old teenager have been detained by police after the alleged victim reported the incident on Thursday (21Aug14), according to The Guardian.

Chief Inspector Dave Parker says, "There is currently a scene watch in place and I would like to reassure those attending the festival that crime levels remain low and crimes of this nature are very rare.

"Officers are patrolling the site to support on-site security and if anyone has any concerns, please feel free to approach our officers to discuss these."

There have been 21 crimes including five alleged drugs offences and 13 suspected thefts ahead of the festival, which will feature performances from Arctic Monkeys, Blink-182 and Paramore this weekend (22-24Aug14).
