Shopper indecently assaulted in Shoreditch

A shopper was indecently assaulted in Shoreditch and now detectives have released a CCTV image of a man they want to speak to in connection with the incident.

The 21-year-old victim, of Mile End, was in Boxpark Mall at about 4.30pm on Thursday, September 20, when two men and a woman walked into the shop.

Det Con Graeme Knox said: “One of the men then approached the victim and, after making inappropriate comments, he began to touch her.

“The victim told the man to stop before a witness shouted at the man and all three left the shop, heading towards Brick Lane.

“This must have been very intimidating for the victim and I would appeal for anyone with any information to come forward and help identify the man responsible.”
