Detectives are appealing for the public’s help to identify a man they want to speak to following a sexual assault.

The incident occurred during the early hours of Sunday, 5 January at a nightclub in Old Street, Islington.

A woman was on the dance floor of the club when she was sexually assaulted by a man. She reported the incident to police later that day and continues to be supported by specialist officers.

While the investigation continues, there have been no arrests at this stage.

After exhausting all other reasonable lines of enquiry, detectives are now releasing an image of a man they would like to identify and speak to.

Anyone who recognises this man or has information that could assist the investigation is asked to contact police on 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD4117/05JAN20.

Alternatively, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
