Operation Ribbon: New Arrests In Abuse Probe
Police have arrested a further four men in connection with allegations of a child sex abuse gang in Buckinghamshire.
The men, aged between 19 and 22, were held as Thames Valley Police carried out search warrants in High Wycombe on Tuesday morning.
The arrests are part of Operation Ribbon, which saw 10 men arrested in the town last November.
Police began their investigation more than a year ago after a girl came forward claiming to have been sexually abused by a group of men.
It is alleged the abuse began as far back as 2007 when the girl was aged just 12.
Detectives say information given by the girl suggested there could have been other young victims and they are appealing for anyone who may have been abused, or who might have information, to come forward.
High Wycombe Police Commander Superintendent Gilbert Houalla said: "I can assure you that Wycombe police will always protect the vulnerable and challenge the offender.
"This cannot happen without the help of the community and what I'm asking for today is precisely that support."
A confidential helpline number has been issued by Thames Valley Police - 01296 396 396.
