Christchurch Police have today arrested and charged a 52-year-old man with sexual violation.

The man was giving massages at a Christchurch dance school when the alleged offending occurred.

"Police are working to build a full picture of this alleged offending and we would like to hear from anyone who has attended a Christchurch dance school and has concerns about behaviours of a similar nature." said Detective Senior Sergeant Scott Anderson.

"We take complaints such as this very seriously and there are no time limits on reporting such allegations. Police will provide appropriate support and advice to anyone who comes forward."

You can contact local Police on 03 363 7400 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Police are unable to provide specific details which would identify the dance school involved.

The man is due to appear in Christchurch District Court tomorrow.
