Officers were called to a report that a man who appeared to be drunk had followed a 16-year-old girl and harassed her at a bus stop in the Promenade in Cheltenham at around 7.50pm on Thursday, April 20.

The victim explained that she had been approached by the man who said: "If you don't kiss me I am not going to leave."

It was also reported that the man had followed a woman into the No131 hotel in the Promenade, Cheltenham despite her asking him to stop.

He has since been released on police bail.
