I do not think that he has been named by the police, only by the media.
A force spokesman said: "North Yorkshire police can confirm that a 73-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a historic child sex abuse investigation in Harrogate.
"The man was arrested in Kingston upon Thames on Friday 26 April 2013. Following questioning, he was released on police bail pending further inquiries.
"The complaint relates to an incident that occurred in the late 1970s when the victim was a young boy.
"It would not be appropriate to comment further at this stage."
Where do you think they get the names from!
