A man has been arrested following an investigation into two reports of indecent exposure in Bollington.

 

Two incidents are believed to have taken place on separate dates in June in the Bollington Rec area.

 

The victims are aged 11 and 12 and are currently being supported by specially trained officers.

 

A 39-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of exposure and inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and enquiries are continuing.

 

Detective Inspector Claire Jesson said: “These incidents have undoubtedly caused some concerns among members of the public. I would like to reassure people that officers have worked tirelessly to get to the bottom of the incidents and as a result, we have made an arrest and our investigation continues.

 

“The children involved in these incidents have been really brave in coming forward in reporting this to us, and I would encourage anyone else who has seen any suspicious activity of a similar nature to also come forward and report it to Cheshire police on 101.”
