A man arrested in connection with a serious sexual offence at Fort Victoria Country Park, Yarmouth on Monday 31 August, has been bailed with conditions until 28 September while our investigation continues.
Superintendent Sarah Jackson, District Commander for the Isle of Wight, said: “Detectives investigating this offence have been working tirelessly and will continue to do so.
“I would like to once again thank the community for their ongoing support, feedback and assistance with our enquiries. Please continue to call us with any information you have that could help, we still think there could have been other people in the park who haven’t yet come forward.
“Incidents such as this are very rare, but I am asking parents and guardians to be vigilant when children are playing outdoors and children are asked to look out for each other and avoid talking to strangers. I would urge you to report anything suspicious immediately to 101.
“We will be working with partner agencies to ensure this advice is shared as widely as possible
Anyone with information about the incident in Fort Victoria Country park is urged to contact 101 quoting Operation July.
