Man arrested after reports of sexual act on a horse

A man has been arrested following an investigation into reports of a sexual act with a horse in Leicester.

Police were called out to playing fields next to Braunstone Lane East at about 3.20pm on Thursday June 5.

A 19 year old man was arrested yesterday and has since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

This was a particularly distressing incident that left the horse requiring veterinary treatment, thankfully it does not appear to have suffered any lasting injury."
