Former DJ Arrested for Historical Child Sex Offences

Jonathan King, ex TV and radio presenter, has been arrested on suspicion of historical child sex offences.

Surrey police officers arrested the former DJ on Wednesday 9th September, along with two other men. It has been reported that the arrests have been carried out in connection to incidents alleged to have taken place at the Walton Hop Disco in Walton-in-Thames, Surrey.

According to police, the three men involved have been arrested on suspicion of a number of sexual offences relating to young boys under the age of 16. The offences are alleged to have occurred in the 1970s and 1980s.

TV & Radio Personality

King first became known for his single ‘Everyone’s Gone To The Moon’, which reached number 4 in the UK charts and number 17 in the US in the 1960s. King’s TV and radio career included work on BBC shows The Great British Song Contest and No Limits.

He is also known as a music entrepreneur and record producer, discovering and naming the music group Genesis, as well as producing the Bay City Rollers’ first successful single.

Operation Ravine

King’s arrest has been made as part of an on-going investigation, Operation Ravine, which is looking into claims of sexual offences towards children associated with the disco in Walton-on-Thames.

It is reported that the disco was a popular place with celebrities and pop stars during the 1970s and 80s.

Detective Chief Inspector Karen Mizzi has said of Operation Ravine:

“This is a complex investigation into numerous allegations of sexual abuse and assault dating back over several decades.

“Our investigation focuses on the Walton Hop Disco, a popular event for youngsters between the 1970s and 1980s, and we are following a number of lines of inquiry.

“However, if anyone has information that may help the investigation I would ask them to contact us.”

Operation Ravine was established after a review by Merseyside Police into ‘Operation Arundel’, an investigation carried out by Surrey Police that started in 2000.

Surrey Police have confirmed that King and the two others arrested have been released on bail until March 9th next year and there is currently a team of specialist police officers searching the men’s properties.
