A second man has been arrested in connection with public indecency acts in Claverham and Yatton.

A man in his 20s was taken into custody yesterday (Monday) and a second man was arrested today (Tuesday).

Police have received more than a dozen reports of a man 'jumping out at people' and either wearing sexualised clothing or making inappropriate gestures.

A police spokesman said: "We've arrested a second man in connection with a series of incidents in the Claverham and Yatton area.

"Since November last year, we've received 14 reports of a man approaching people while wearing disguises, one of which was a black body suit.

"In some of the incidents the offender is said to have performed indecent acts.

"The man, aged in his 30s, was arrested this afternoon on suspicion of indecency offences and he is currently in police custody.

"The arrest comes after a man in his 20s arrested yesterday was earlier released on police bail.

"Inquiries into the incidents are ongoing."
