Young girls molested while swimming in beach town rocked by series of sex assaults: police

Two young girls were allegedly sexually assaulted by a middle-aged man while swimming in the ocean on the coast of the United Kingdom over the weekend.

The girls, ages 10 and 11, said the 43-year-old man touched them inappropriately while they were swimming near the pier on Bournemouth Beach, and the suspect has since been arrested, according to the Sun.

“Detectives are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward as they investigate two reported sexual assaults at Bournemouth Beach,” Dorset Police said.

“We received a report at 3:45 p.m. on Sunday of a disturbance in the area of Pier Approach. Officers attended, and it was reported that two girls – aged 10 and 11 years – had been touched inappropriately by a man when they were in the sea near to the pier,” police continued.

“Following inquiries, a 43-year-old London man was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault.”

The alleged sexual assault is the latest to rock the seaside town in southern England, which fielded a report earlier this month from a 17-year-old boy who claimed he was similarly assaulted while swimming at Bournemouth.

A 19-year-old man is awaiting trial following allegations that he raped a 15-year-old girl in front of thousands of other people on the beach.

“We are carrying out a detailed investigation into these incidents, and I am keen to hear from anyone who witnessed what happened who has not already spoken to police,” said Detective Constable Cameron Carter, who works for law enforcement in Bournemouth.
