Police are currently investigating a number of reports after a woman in Ashton-under-Lyne had been receiving multiple threatening and abusive phone calls, emails and letters over recent weeks.
This morning (Wednesday 27 October) officers from GMP attended an address in Halifax and arrested a 52-year-old man.
He was arrested on suspicion of malicious communications and has since been released on bail pending further enquiries.
His arrest relates to abusive phone calls received on Friday 15 October.
Enquiries remain ongoing.
Detective Sergeant Christopher Dean of GMP's Tameside district said: "Abusive, threatening or bullying behaviour towards anyone is completely unacceptable and we will always do what we can to ensure those responsible are identified and held accountable for their behaviour.
"Although we have arrested one man our investigation very much remains ongoing and we will continue to pursue all available lines of enquiry to identify all those responsible."
