Police investigating a sexual assault on a teenage boy in Bishop’s Waltham last month have arrested a man.

It comes after a boy was walking alone along Winchester Road, by a pond, at around 2.45pm on Friday December 9th when he was approached by an unknown man who reached out and grabbed at the boy’s chest area.

The man then appeared to walk away from the scene, before turning back to lift up his items of clothing to indecently expose himself to the teenage boy, before fleeing the scene once again.

Police carried out initial enquiries to identify the person responsible and as a result of an appeal and the public’s support, officers have now arrested a man in relation to the incident.

A 67-year-old man from Southampton has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and two offences of indecent exposure.

He remains in custody at this time.
