Police urge sex offence victims to come forward

Police are urging anyone who has been the victim of an historic sexual assault to come forward.

The appeal comes after a retired vicar appeared before magistrates in Douglas charged with indecently assaulting a schoolgirl in 1990.

The Public Protection Unit are keen to hear from any victim of any sexual offence recent or historic.

Officers say they can offer advice and listen to concerns as well as helping victims make a formal complaint.

Anyone wishing to speak to the unit can do so by calling Police Headquarters on 631212.
