It was reported that the man had sexually assaulted a teenage girl, who is aged under 16, in the Tuffley area between 7pm and 8.30pm on Thursday 19 January.
A man aged his 20s from Gloucester has since been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault of a child and remains in police custody today (Monday 23 January).
It is believed that the man and the victim, who are known to each other, had walked from the Co-op on Stroud Road, to Robert Raikes Avenue, Tuffley at around 6.45pm. They then sat in the park and later walked to Evenlode Road.
Police are asking for anyone who saw the man and teenage girl, or who may have doorbell footage, CCTV or dashcam, to come forward.
