Police investigating a number of sex assaults on women have arrested a 14-year-old boy.
The child faces questioning for ‘a string of sexual assaults’ in Penge, south east London.
He was arrested last night (Mon) after staff noticed the lad acting ‘suspiciously’ inside their shop.
Bromley Police announced the arrest, following the series of attacks in February.
They wrote: “14-year-old boy arrested by Bromley police and questioned about a series of sexual assaults on women in Penge during the last month.
“He was caught last night after staff in a shop became suspicious about him. Police are continuing to investigate.”

Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
