Man arrested in connection with care home sex attacks

A man has been arrested in connection with alleged sex attacks at a Devon care home.

On Tuesday, Christina Sethi, 25, of Woodville Road, Torquay, was charged with three counts of sexual assault.

Devon and Cornwall Police said a 32-year-old man had been arrested "on suspicion of conspiracy to commit sexual assault" and had been bailed.

Ms Sethi has been remanded in custody and is due to appear at Plymouth Crown Court on 26 May.

Police said the charges related to two women at a residential care home in south Devon sometime between 1 January 2014 and 10 May 2015.

Det Ch Insp Charlie Pitman said: "This investigation continues and has inevitable sensitivities.

"We currently believe the investigation is contained and potential victims identified.

"Communication is ongoing with those connected to these vulnerable people and the residential care home concerned.

"There is nothing at this stage to suggest any wider safeguarding concerns."
