A man has been arrested following reports of a “serious sexual assault” in Bradley Stoke on Easter Sunday (1st April).
The news, released only today (Wednesday 4th April), comes three days after a police cordon was seen to be in place for several hours on Sunday morning, centred on a footpath connecting Brook Way with the playing field at Patchway Common (behind Bradley Stoke Surgery).
A number of Journal readers living in the area, near Oaktree Crescent, also reported that police had conducted house-to-house enquiries on Sunday morning.
The investigation scene was finally closed down at around 12.15pm on Sunday.
A spokesperson for Avon and Somerset Police said:
“We were called at about 7.30am on Sunday 1st April to reports of a serious sexual assault in Oaktree Crescent, Bradley Stoke. A 22-year-old man has been arrested and released under investigation.”
