POLICE have launched an urgent appeal to help identify a man after a ten-year-old girl was sexually assaulted in a London Boots store.
British Transport Police issued CCTV images of the man detectives would like to speak to and say they are "very confident" he can help with their investigation.
The girl was in Boots in Victoria Place Shopping Centre, in Victoria station, London at 2.50pm on Saturday when she was assaulted.
Officers said they conducted extensive enquiries over the weekend and have since urged anyone with information to come forward.
Detective Constable Tony Gittins said: “This is a particularly disturbing incident given the very young age of the victim, and we are working tirelessly to identify the person responsible and bring them in to custody for questioning.
“I would like to appeal for the public’s help in identifying the man in the CCTV images, who we are confident will be able to assist with our investigation."
