Man charged with two counts of sexual assault

A man has been charged with two counts of sexual assault.

Adio Adeshine, 19 (24.09.02). of East Street SE17, appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday, 16 September charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of breach of a sexual harm prevention order.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Southwark Crown Court on 14 October.

It follows an incident on Wednesday, 16 September in which two women were allegedly sexually assaulted in Victoria Tower Gardens.

Officers were called and a man was arrested and taken into custody. He was later charged as above.

DAC Stuart Cundy, said: “With ongoing legal proceedings, I’m not able to discuss the full details of this incident. As those present in the queue will have seen, officers were on hand to immediately respond and arrest the man.

"Stewards and police officers in London are present throughout the route to help and support those who are queuing to pay their respects to Her Majesty the Queen. There has been very little crime or other incidents where officers have had to intervene.

“I continue to ask all members of the public to remain vigilant and if you see something that doesn’t look right, please report it to an officer or steward.”
