Officers renew appeal in relation to linked sexual assault incidents in Milton Keynes

Officers investigating a series of linked incidents of sexual assault in Milton Keynes are today (4/11) re-releasing a CCTV image of man they would like to speak to.

Three of the incidents occurred between 7.30am and 8.10am on Tuesday 5 October in central Milton Keynes, and a fourth was later reported, which had occurred on the previous day (4 October).


On each occasion, a female victim had been walking alone when they were approached from behind by a man who sexually assaulted them by touching them inappropriately over their clothing.


None of the victims, three of whom were all aged in their mid to late teens and a fourth in her thirties, were injured in any of the incidents and they are not linked to any previous incidents reported in Milton Keynes.


Investigating officer Detective Constable Mandy Banfield of Milton Keynes CID said: “This series of incidents occurred within a narrow time frame on Monday 4 and Tuesday 5 October.


“We have good reason to believe that the man pictured in the image has important information that could assist this investigation.


“The offences took place on the overbridge behind Central Milton Keynes train station, close to the Wetherspoons pub in Midsummer Boulevard, outside Sainsbury’s on Witan Gate and on Oldbrook Boulevard.


“I can confirm that we are not linking these offences to incidents of a similar nature that were reported to the force between 9 and 23 September.


“I would appeal to anybody who recognises the man in the image, or if you are this man, to please get in touch with Thames Valley Police either by making a report online or by calling 101, quoting reference number 43210450724.


“Alternatively, for 100% anonymity, you can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
