Police arrested a 15-year-old boy from Gloucester in the early hours of this morning (Tuesday 22 February) on suspicion of rape and sexual assault.
This arrest is connected to an incident in Montpellier park, Cheltenham on Saturday 11 December and the boy currently remains in police custody.

Rape and Serious Sexual Offences Detective Sergeant Faye Satchwell-Bennett said: “We are currently in the process of submitting further evidence for examination in this case. However, please can I urge people to cast their minds back to that day - if they were in the park area, if they heard or saw anything suspicious, particularly a group of young people concentrated around the centre of the park. We'd please like you to get in touch."
