Appeal - do you recognise this man?

Police are asking the public for help in identifying a man they would like to speak to in connection with a sexual assault.

Officers from the City of London Police are trying to trace the individual following an incident in which a female was sexually assaulted near Aldgate on Friday 19 April 2019 at approximately 02:00.

Detective Inspector Anna Rice, from the City of London Police’s Public Protection Unit, said:

“This attack was incredibly distressing for the victim and we are urging anyone who recognises the man in the picture we have issued today to contact police.

“We do not believe the perpetrator of this attack knew the victim and instead, targeted her randomly. It is important we apprehend the individual responsible for this attack as soon as possible before they commit another offence.

“We believe the man in this picture can help further our enquiries. If you know him, or have any information that may assist our investigation, please call 0207 601 2122.”
