The police arrested a 17-year-old boy from Almelo on Wednesday on suspicion of involvement in a "serious sex crime" that was committed in the vicinity of Kolthofsingel during the early morning hours of May 30th. Exactly what crime the boy is suspected of involvement in, the police did not say.

A 48-year-old person was the victim of the sex crime. An extensive trace evidence investigation was done at and around the scene, and sniffer dogs were used to search for traces. 

The investigation led the police to the 17-year-old boy. He was arrested at his home on Wednesday. 

The police are still looking for a second man, who is currently not suspected of involvement in the crime. His identity is known to the police.
