"Arrest in relation to indecent assaults"
Dunedin Police have arrested and charged a man in connection to a series of indecent assaults since late August at the Botanic Gardens.
The 29-year-old from West Otago has been charged with indecent assault and will appear at Invercargill District Court on 25 October.
Sergeant Phill Hamlin, of Dunedin’s Tactical Crime Unit, says the arrest should provide reassurance to the community that Police are working hard to make sure people are safe.
He would also like to thank members of the public who provided information to Police in this matter.
“We really appreciate the public being our ‘eyes and ears’, and encourage people to report anything or anyone that looks out of place or suspicious,” he says.
“Information provided to us, no matter how small, can sometimes be the critical piece of the jigsaw that helps us identify offenders and act to prevent further harm to victims.”
