Later that day (January 7) a 21-year-old woman was allegedly approached at 7.30pm on Winston Road in Barry; and then at 9.15pm on Fern Drive in Barry a 22-year-old woman was allegedly approached.
Police say the arrest was made following information supplied to them by a member of the public, who had seen the appeal.
Officers say they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incidents.
