Man arrested in connection with the St George sex assaults last year
A MAN has been arrested and questioned about a series of sexual assaults on girls and young women in St George last year.
As previously reported, Avon and Somerset police linked three crimes – two in an alley off of Kingsway and one in Furber Road.
And on Tuesday, a 32-year-old from the St George area was arrested on suspicion of committing all three.
He was initially arrested and charged with an unrelated theft and three counts of voyeurism.

He admitted those crimes at Bristol Magistrates' Court and has been remanded in custody for sentencing at Bristol Crown Court next month.
Meanwhile, police have bailed him in relation to the sexual assault allegations to allow detectives to carry out more investigation.
As a result, The Post cannot name him for legal reasons at present.
Last November 28, at about 9.30pm, a 24-year-old woman was grabbed after getting out of her car on Furber Road.
Police believe that crime was carried out by the same man who attacked two 16-year-old girls on separate occasions in an alley off of Kingsway in May, one of which resulted in a sexual assault.
The suspect in each case was about 6ft tall, white, with blue eyes, covering his face with a scarf on one occasion and a balaclava on another. The Post understands the 32-year-old suspect lives very close to Furber Road.
Following appeals in The Post and other media, police received a number of calls and messages to help them in their investigation.
Detective Sergeant Steve Cartlidge said in December: "Information has come to us through various channels, including phone, via officers on the street and also through social media."
Anyone with information on the attacks last year can still call the police on 101.
