The alleged incidents happened at around 1.35 on Saturday afternoon when a man parked a white van in Imperial Avenue in Thornaby and then allegedly got out of the vehicle and approached the two girls, one aged 10 and one aged under 10, and sexually assaulted them.

He then returned to his van and drove off in the direction of Westbury Street.

A 57 year old man who was arrested in connected with the alleged offences has now been bailed with conditions whilst enquiries continue.

 

Police community support officers in our area have been deployed to assist with a number of incidents in our area.

Officers were deployed to Marske and Redcar town centre to deal with ongoing anti-social behaviour yesterday evening.

Earlier in the day, crews responded to a concern for safety in Morrisons after being made aware from a member of the public of a female who appeared confused and disoriented in the store.

The female was located safe and well and taken back to her home address.

Earlier, officers had also been called to the Morrisons store after a 90 year old man suffered a head injury after falling in the car park.

Officers would like to thank staff and members of the public for assisting the gentleman.

Anyone with information about crime, can contact Cleveland Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

 

Police are asking parents and carers to ask their children where they are on an evening as the darker nights arrive, along with the half term holiday for many youngsters.

This time of year has traditionally seen an increase in calls to police about antisocial behaviour and criminal damage.  The annual Operation Autumnus sees police working with partners during the October-November period of increased demand.

Senior officers from Cleveland Police, Local Authorities and Cleveland Fire Brigade are warning children- and their parents or guardians -  that there is no excuse for this behaviour and anyone taking part in it will suffer the consequences.
