A 20-year-old man from Northampton has been released under investigation pending further enquiries following two allegations of public order in the town.
The man was arrested on Thursday evening (January 19), following a media appeal by officers investigating an incident which occurred in Hester Street, Northampton, on Monday, January 16, when a motorist is alleged to have shown a woman an indecent image on his phone.
Following the appeal, a second incident was reported to the Force. This occurred in Hampton Street, Northampton, shortly after midday on Tuesday, January 17, when a driver is alleged to have shown another woman an indecent image on his phone.
Officers investigating both incidents arrested a man on suspicion of the public order offences. He was further arrested on suspicion of taking a motor vehicle without consent, driving with no insurance and without holding a full valid licence.
Northampton Neighbourhood Policing officer, PC Sean Whelan is leading the investigation, and would still like to hear from anyone who may have been approached in a similar manner.
He said: “Although a man has been arrested in connection with this incident, we would still encourage anyone who may have been approached in a similar manner, and has not yet reported it to us, to please do so.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
