Public appeal to find stranger who grabbed woman before punching her

Police have released an e-fit image of a man they want to speak to after a woman was sexually assaulted and punched.

At around 9.15am on Saturday, February 3, the victim – a woman in her mid-30s – was sitting on a bench in Wendell Park, Shepherd’s Bush, when she was approached by a man who was unknown to her.

He suddenly grabbed and kissed her, then made sexual comments to her.

The victim pushed him away, at which point he punched her in the eye, before fleeing the area.

Investigating officer PC Louise Trott said: “The woman was sat minding her own business when she was subject to a horrible assault.

“We are following a number of enquiries and urgently need to identify the man pictured. If you have information that could help us, please make contact immediately.”

To share helpful information or material with police, call 101 or post @MetCC ref CAD 3887/03FEB24.

To remain 100 per cent anonymous contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
