LONDON (AP) - British police arrested a man in his 60s Thursday in connection to the broad investigation into child sex abuse spurred by the Jimmy Savile case.
The man has not been identified.
Police said the man from Surrey, south of London, was arrested Thursday morning on suspicion of sexual offenses and is being questioned at a central London police station.
Savile was a BBC entertainer who has in recent months been accused of serial sexual abuse of underage girls. He died last year without having been charged with any offenses.
The Savile allegations have caused a major embarrassment for his employer, the BBC, which has been accused of failing to report on investigations into Savile's alleged crimes.
At least two others have been arrested in the investigation of the alleged abuse.
British media have identified the suspects as comedian Freddie Starr and former glam rock star Gary Glitter.
