Good news from the city centre

Man Arrested After Northern Quarter Sex Attacks

A MAN has been arrested in connection with a number of sex attacks in the Northern Quarter. 

A 27-year-old man was subsequently arrested on Sunday 15 January 2012, on suspicion of three attempted rapes: one on Postal Street on 12 November 2011; one on Fountain Street on Christmas Eve and one on Medlock Street on Saturday 14 January 2012. He was also arrested in connection with a sexual assault on Tib Street in August 2011. 

He remains in police custody for questioning. 

Superintendent Vanessa Jardine said: "The recent sex attacks have understandably caused considerable concern in the community and as a force we have put a lot of resources into the investigation to identify the offender as well as increasing patrols in an effort to reassure the public and deter any further attacks. 

"Officers working in and around the city have been briefed about these offences and we have widely circulated images taken from CCTV cameras and descriptions provided by the victims. 

"I must commend the excellent work of the officers over the weekend whose actions have led to this arrest and want to again reassure the community that bringing whoever is responsible for these awful crimes to justice is a top priority for us."

UPDATE: A 27-year-old man has since been charged in connection with two sex attacks.
