BREAKING: Australian Entertainer, 82, Arrested On Suspicion Of Sexual Offences

Written by Mike Hohnen on March 29, 2013

The BBC have reported that an 82-year-old Australian entertainer has been arrested on suspicion of sex offences, as Operation Yewtree broaden their investigation into child sex claims against the late Jimmy Savile.

According to a police statement, released a few hours ago, an 82-year-old man from Berkshire, UK was arrested some time last night. The Met have yet to release the name of the individual involved.

UPDATE: Rolf Harris has been named arrested by Operation Yewtree officers on 29th May. Details here.

Tom Savage, editor of The Daily Star newspaper, has tweeted that the man in custody is Rolf Harris.

This recent arrest comes from Operation Yewtree investigations under the category of “Others”, defined as relating to alleged complaints against other people unconnected to the Jimmy Savile investigations but, according to the police spokesperson, “generally people who were in the public spotlight at around that time”.

A bail hearing will be held some time in May.
