On Tuesday 2nd December 2015 Thames Valley Police executed a series of warrants in Aylesbury Vale and High Wycombe in relation to child sexual exploitation and arrested six men.

At around 6.00am officers executed warrants at five properties in Aylesbury, four properties in High Wycombe, one property in Wendover and one property in Luton.

Six men were arrested by Thames Valley Police:

Three men aged 33, 36 and 74 were arrested in Aylesbury, two men aged 44 and 63 were arrested in High Wycombe and a 49 year old man was arrested in Luton. All were arrested on suspicion of historic child sexual offences and are currently in cutsody.

The warrants are in relation to an investigation into reports of historic child sexual exploitation between 1998 and 2004.

Ailsa Kent, Chief Inspector from Major Crime in Aylesbury, said: ‘Today’s warrants are in relation to an investigation into reports of historic child sexual exploitation between 1998 and 2004.

Child sexual exploitation is and will remain a Force priority and we are investing more resources than ever before to tackle this type of exploitation across the Thames Valley. Safeguarding and protecting victims robustly and vigorously is a priority.

People in the local community may have concerns about today’s warrants and I would ask them to speak to their local neighbourhood policing teams.

If you have been a victim of child sexual exploitation, I would encourage you to come forward and speak to the police in confidence. We will listen to you and support you.

If you don’t want to speak to police you can call Crimestoppers anonymously.

If you are worried about somebody who you think may be a victim of child exploitation you can call ChildLine on 0800 1111 or visit their website www.childline.org.uk.
