The arrest is in connection with two incidents which occurred in woodland in Wendover.

The first incident happened on 7 December 2017, when a woman, in her 40s at the time, was walking her dog at around 12.20pm when a man jogging the opposite way touched her inappropriately over her clothing before jogging away.


The second incident happened between 1pm and 1.15pm on 7 October 2019, when a woman in her 40s was walking her dog when a man jogged past her. As he did, the woman’s dog jumped up at the man. The man punched the dog and then shoulder barged the woman, causing her to fall to the floor and break her elbow.

The dog was not hurt during the incident.
