Image released in connection with ongoing harassment investigation

The City of London Police have released a CCTV still of a man they are looking to speak to in connection with a number of harassment incidents.

The victim, a 32 year old woman who works in the City, began receiving letters and gifts from an unknown person on Thursday 11 August 2016. It is believed that the sender saw the victim’s picture in a trade publication and then began sending her unsolicited letters and parcels.

The first parcel contained an anonymous typed letter, two handwritten love poems, a card and sweets; this was sent to the victim's work address in August 2016.

Then in December 2016 another card, written in the same hand as the poems, was delivered to the victim’s parents’ address in Surrey. 

On Valentine’s Day this year (Tuesday 14 February 2017), the victim received a third parcel at her place of work. This package contained a Valentine’s card, a weatherproof hat and an old pair of sunglasses.

Detectives are keen to speak to the man in the image as it is thought he may have significant information that could help their enquiries. This image was captured in Dorking, Surrey.

Detective Constable Deborah O'Loughlin-Whitby from the City of London Public Protection Unit, who is leading the investigation said: “We are looking to speak to this man as we believe he may be able to help us further this investigation.

“It is possible that this man may live in Dorking or the wider area and I would appeal to anyone who recognises the man, or if you recognise yourself in this image, to please get in touch with us.

“Unwanted attention can have a significant emotional and psychological impact on the recipient. It is an invasion of privacy and if you have been a victim of such behaviour please come forward and talk to police.”

If you can help please call the City of London Police on 020 7601 2999 and quote CR/1034/17.
