A MAN has been charged with an offence of sexual touching against a young girl.

Steven Huddart, 24, from Drybeck Grove was remanded in custody and is due to appear before magistrates this morning.



A MAN has been arrested following an allegation of sexual assault against a young girl last night (Wednesday August 27).

Officers were called to a property at around 6.45pm following reports that she had been inappropriately touched by a man at a house in St Helens.

It is believed that neither the arrested man or the girl live at the address.

A 24-year-old man from St Helens was subsequently arrested on suspicion of sexual assault. He has been taken to a police station where he remains in custody for questioning.

A police spokesman said this was an isolated incident and enquiries are ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to call Merseyside Police on 0151 777 6811 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
