Officers are appealing for information after reports of sexual assault and verbal abuse in Oakham.

Around 6pm on Sunday 20 June it was reported that two 13-year-old girls were walking along Princess Avenue when they were followed by two boys who tried to talk to the girls and then touched them inappropriately.

Their parents came to assist them and reported that they were then verbally abused by the boys as they walked across the Princess Avenue Park.

The group left but soon after it was reported that two further girls were touched inappropriately on Princess Avenue.

A 14-year-old boy from Oakham and a 15-year-old boy from Draycott-in-the-Clay were arrested in connection with these incidents and have been bailed.

Enquires have been ongoing and officers are now appealing for anyone with any information in relation to the reports to make contact.

Detective Constable Sam Bates said: “This was a distressing incident for the girls and their parents.

“This occurred in the early evening when many people are likely to have been out and about.

Camayenne We would like to speak to anyone who may have been in the area at the time and witnessed the incidents or captured anything relevant on dash cam.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting reference 21*343547.

Info from DC Bates Leicestershire Police website. Theft of large rubbish bin from Crown Walk, off 12 High Street.  9.5am, 30.6.21, man seen to drive up to bin and place it in a white van, and then drive off.  Value approx. £200.

This is an unusual theft and perhaps might often go unreported, but it seems quite premeditated, the item stolen has little to identify it for resale or use, and the value is not miniscule suggesting there may have been many more of these offences over the preceding weeks.  If you have CCTV in this area, please check to try to identify the index of the vehicle involved.  If you know of other cases, in Oakham or Uppingham Town Centres, have any information regarding the description/identity of the unknown male please pass sit to PC 1312 Joe Lloyd, Oakham Beat Officer quoting crime ref 21*366329.

Affray – fight between 30+ males in vicinity of Wetherspoons and Bills Bar, High Street, approximately 11pm1.7.21.  2 arrests made, incident under investigation.  If anyone has any information which may assist, please pass it by tel 101 for the information of the officer investigating crime ref 121*367626.

Criminal Damage – to a Vauxhall Astra, parked Stud Road Barleythorpe, between 10pm 1.7 and 3pm 2.7.21 (Thurs/Fri).  2 tyres slashed.  If anyone has any information relating to the person(s) responsible, please pass to Police, tel 101 quoting crime ref 21*370848 for the information of the officer in the case.

No further appropriate reports for Oakham, North Beat, South Beat and Uppingham.
