In response:

We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I provide a response for your attention.

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the Newcastle Area Command of Northumbria Police.  I can confirm that the information you have requested is held by Northumbria Police. As discussed and agreed, sexual offences have not been included in the search parameters of this request.

I have decided to disclose the located information to you as follows.

Please note the crimes were reported as occurring between the times specified above.  Some of the incidents  were reported as occurring over a longer period of time (in some cases a few days). 
Therefore we can't confirm whether they actually occurred at the times specified.

With the above in mind please see the attached below which answers your request.
