TWO more men have been arrested as part of an investigation into the alleged child sexual abuse of nine girls in Rotherham in the early 1990s.
The officers, working as part of the National Crime Agency's Operation Stovewood, made the arrests in South Yorkshire on Monday and Tuesday.
The two men, both aged 36 and from Rotherham aged 36, were arrested about offences relating to the abuse of three girls in Rotherham who would have been aged 14 or 15 years at the time.
The men have been questioned and released while investigations continue.
Philip Marshall, Senior Investigating Officer of Operation Stovewood, said:
“The pace at which we are investigating previous sexual violence and abuse of children in Rotherham is not abating. We are continuing to make arrests of further suspects as our investigations move forward. Victims and survivors can be reassured that we are here to listen to you and to support you. You will be taken seriously, and we will seek justice for you.”
