POLICE investigating the rape of an 89-year-old woman more than a month ago have confirmed that no arrests have been made.

They said inquiries are continuing into the attack on the great-grandmother, who has Alzheimer's.

Police were alerted after the victim told how one young man sexually assaulted her as another looked on and laughed.

The incident took place in the Rossmore area of Poole at some time between 10pm on Saturday December 30 and 9.30am the following morning.
