Police investigating threats to Stella Creasy and Caroline Criado-Perez say 32-year-old is being held in Bristol.
Police investigating threats made on Twitter against the Labour MP Stella Creasy and the writer and campaigner Caroline Criado-Perez have arrested a man in Bristol.
In a statement, Scotland Yard said: "Detectives from the MPS [Metropolitan police service] have this morning, 7 August, arrested a 32-year-old-man, on suspicion of committing an offence under the Protection of Harassment Act, 1997.
"He was arrested at an address in Bristol by officers from the MPS police central e-crime unit as part of an ongoing investigation into allegations relating to threats made on Twitter."
The man, who has been taken to a Bristol police station, was arrested in connection with allegations made on 25 and 29 July.
A Metropolitan police spokeswoman confirmed that the arrest was linked to threats made to Creasy and Criado-Perez on the micro-blogging site.
A number of women in the public eye have been threatened on Twitter in recent weeks, among them the historian Mary Beard and the journalists Hadley Freeman, Grace Dent, India Knight and Laurie Penny.
