Have you been a victim? Detectives believe some victims have yet to come forward.

Detectives investigating a series of alleged sexual assaults in Seaton are appealing for more victims to come forward.

Three females have reported being indecently assaulted in the resort over the past month, but police believe some women may not have reported being inappropriately touched by a stranger.

DC Steve Harrington, of Honiton CID, is appealing for those women to get in touch with him.

He told the Midweek Herald that two of the reported assaults took place in “local shops” and that the other happened in the street.

The alleged incidents are being linked.

A 29-year-old male is currently on police bail in connection with the allegations.

Anybody with information is urged to contact DC Harrington on 101, quoting crime reference number KN12238.
