Police investigating sexual assault make public appeal

CCTV images have been released of a man who police want to speak to in connection with a sexual assault.

A 16-year-old boy was using a urinal in the Gloucester Quays toilets at around 1pm on Friday, 9 September.

A man next to him began grinning and then touched the victim inappropriately. The victim shouted at the man to get off him before leaving the toilets.

The offender was of Asian origin, around 5ft 10in tall, in his 20s or 30s, with a beard.

He was wearing a baseball cap backwards, a white American football jersey, blue jogging bottoms and grey shoes.

Jason Pullen, Managing Director for Gloucester Quays, said: "We're fully supporting the police with their investigation into this isolated incident.

"We take the security and safety of our customers seriously and we're proud of the clean, well-cared for and safe environment we've created at the Quays, including our award-winning car park.

"Customers are our number one priority and we'll continue to provide an outstanding customer experience and the highest standards of service and safety in the region."

Anyone who recognises the man in the images is urged to call police on 101 quoting incident 463 of 9 September.
