A 26-YEAR-old man was arrested yesterday in connection with the Operation Bullfinch inquiry into child sexual exploitation.

The man, who is from Maidenhead was held on suspicion of rape, aiding and abetting rape and sexual assault.

The allegations relate to two victims, who were aged 15 and 17 at the time.

The 17-year-old girl was not part of the recent trial that saw seven men from Oxford jailed at the Old Bailey in London for a total of 95 years for operating a range of sexual offences.

Police also confirmed the 15-year-old is Girl 6 from the first trial.

Operation Bullfinch is the police investigation into a gang who raped, abused and prostituted girls in Oxford.

As of last night the 26-year-old man was in custody for questioning. Two other men are currently facing charges in relation to Bullfinch and five others are on police bail.
