“In March 2017, we appealed for information to identify someone that we wanted to speak to regarding a serious assault upon a young female near Neerings in Cwmbran. An e-fit of this male was also generated and circulated to the public.

“I would like to thank the public for their response to this appeal and for the many shares on social media that this generated. As the investigation progressed other victims were identified.

“I would like to update you that at 07.29am on 19th April, 2017, officers arrested a 17 year old male, who was later charged with common assault, assault by beating and two offences of sexual assaults upon a female. He was remanded in police custody and appeared in court this morning, Thursday 20th April 2017.
