Two teens arrested over sex attacks released

Two teenage boys arrested in connection with a string of sex attacks around a university campus have been released by police.

The 14-year-old and 18-year-old must return to a police station later today to be questioned further by officers, Greater Manchester Police said.

Three separate attacks have taken place surrounding the grounds of the University of Manchester in the past month.

The arrests were made after a senior detective made a public appeal for information about the wanted offender - who was described as being young as 12 - fearing the attacks might escalate.
