MILAN – Italian police on Wednesday arrested two people on suspicion of involvement in a sexual assault against nine women in Milan on New Year’s Eve, a judicial source said.

The source told Reuters that the two men – aged 21 and 18 – are both Italians and that police identified them with the help of surveillance-system videos in Milan’s Duomo square, where celebrations were ongoing.

Police searches have targeted 18 suspects – including three minors – and prosecutors say they hope to identify more people as the investigation continues, the judicial source said.
