Police arrest man after sex assault on teenage boy in the UK

A man has been arrested in connection with a sexual assault on a teenage boy in England.

The suspect, aged 55, was arrested by West Midlands Police on Saturday after a 16-year-old was attacked in Birmingham city centre on November 30.

Police said the boy accepted a lift to a bus stop from a man in a van. He was later locked inside the vehicle and assaulted after being driven from Kent Street to nearby Claybrook Street.

Police have also seized the vehicle that detectives believe was used in the attack.

It came after police released CCTV footage in connection with the incident.

Detective Sergeant Guy Stephenson said: "I would like to thank everyone who got in touch following the appeal yesterday - if anyone has any more information they should call us on 101."
