We have made an arrest in connection to a series of sexual offences which occurred in Bedford.
Officers launched an investigation after receiving reports of three incidents, relating to an indecent exposure on 24 June and sexual assaults on 5 July in the Foster Hill Road area.
A teenage boy is currently in police custody after being arrested yesterday (Thursday) on suspicion of sexual assault.
Detective Chief Inspector Michelle Lack from Bedfordshire Police said: “We understand members of the public have been concerned following reports of sexual assault in this area. "Our specialist teams have been following several lines of enquiries since receiving these reports, which has led to yesterday’s arrest.
"As a force, we are doing all we can to tackle male violence against women and girls and make Bedfordshire a safer place. "With a clear focus on bringing perpetrators to justice, we will leave no stone unturned in finding those responsible and holding them accountable for their actions.
"If you have been a victim of sexual offences, please remember it is never too late to report and we are here to listen and support.”
You can report any offences via our online reporting centre or call police on 101.
