But the force said the accusations are not linked to the national inquiry into abuse by disgraced TV presenter Savile.
Detective inspector Simon Davies said: "I want to make it absolutely clear that this is not an investigation into the late Jimmy Savile, nor do any of the allegations relate to any involvement by Savile."
