An image of a man wanted for the indecent assault of a 31-year-old woman has been released by police.

The woman was pushed to the ground in Christian Street, Whitechapel before being assaulted by the suspect in the early hours of Saturday (June 11).

He had kissed her on the cheek before the attack at around 4.45am.

Police believe he was disturbed by two passersby which led him to flee the scene.

An e-fit, or computer-generated image, has been released and the man is described as being of North African appearance, about 5ft 11ins and thin with short black hair.

He wore a grey long-sleeved t-shirt and blue jeans.

Information to DC Nick Corbett at Bethnal Green CID on 0208 217 3758 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
