Four men from Bradford and Kirklees arrested on non-recent child abuse charges

The incidents are said to have occurred between 1994 and 1997.

Police investigating non-recent allegations of child sexual abuse in Bradford have arrested four men as part of an arrest operation.

The individuals were arrested from addresses in Bradford and Kirklees area.

All four men, aged between 46 and 48 have been interviewed and released under investigation.

The allegations relate to offences, which are reported to have occurred in the District between 1994 and 1997 and relate to one victim.

Detective Chief Inspector Al Weekes of Bradford District Police said: “Safeguarding and protecting children remains the top priority for West Yorkshire Police. This investigation demonstrates the Force’s ongoing commitment to the investigation of both current and non-recent sexual offences against children.

“Child sexual abuse and exploitation is an abhorrent and heinous crime and one which affects some of the most vulnerable people in our society.

“Tackling child abuse is not something that any one agency can do in isolation; we work closely with local authorities, other organisations and charities to support victims, bring the perpetrators to justice and make our communities safer.

“We would urge anyone who has been a victim of sexual abuse, whether recent or non-recent, to report it to the police. Please be assured that you will be listened to, taken seriously and supported by professionals with experience in dealing with these kinds of offences.”
