A TEENAGE boy is due at court today after being charged with raping and robbing a Japanese tourist on a visit to Sheffield.

The 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was charged last night after a day of questioning and is to appear at the city’s Magistrates’ Court.

He was arrested after an 18-year-old woman was raped in the Ponderosa Park, Netherthorpe, on Friday night last week.
