During the British actor’s arrest on April 6, police also served him with a search warrant to give them access to his home in Los Angeles, TMZ reported at the time.
LAPD sources said Gatt was taken into custody and arrested on an outstanding felony warrant for ‘contact with a minor for a sexual offense.’
The LAPD’s Juvenile Division, Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, are now seeking to identify any additional victims after the arrest.
DailyMail.com has reached out to representatives for the actor who have so far been unavailable for comment.
On Wednesday, Gatt posted a statement about his arrest to his Twitter account.
‘I obviously want to address the absolutely horrifying and completely untrue allegations recently leveled against me. They are 100% categorically wrong and reckless,’ he wrote.

‘I have confirmed errors and misleading information in today’s press release. I am fully cooperating with police and LAPD to get to the bottom of this,’ he continued. ‘I look forward to clearing my good name. Thank you to all my friends and supporters who know that this is untrue and understand for legal reasons I cannot comment further on social media.’
One of Gatt’s most high-profile roles was when he played Thenn Warg on the popular HBO series Game Of Thrones.
His character was a member of the Thenn, a tribe of Free Folk known for their practices of ritual self-scarification and cannibalism.
Gatt appeared in three episodes of the series — based on the popular novels by George R. R. Martin — in 2014.
