Police in London are looking for information on two men in connection with a sexual assault a block away from Camden nightclub G.A.Y. Late.
The incident, which happened shortly before 03:00 AM on Wednesday, October 24 of last year, occurred on Flitcroft Street in Camden, very close to the venue.
According to police, a man in his 20s was sexually assaulted by two men, who fled the scene on foot.
A friend of the man who had been assaulted came to his aid before the police arrived.
Almost three months after the attack, London authorities are appealing for information on two men in connection with the investigation.
Police describe both of the men as white and of Eastern European origin.
One of the men is thought to be aged between 35 and 40 years old. He is estimated to be around 5”5 and police describe his build as stocky. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a dark puffer jacket.
The other man is thought to be aged between 30 and 35. He has a slimmer build, and at 5”8, he is also taller than the first man. He has light brown hair and was wearing a blue Superdry jacket at the time of the attack.
Speaking of the incident, Detective Constable Robin East said:
“This was a sexual assault on a man in a public street and we appeal for anyone who thinks they can help us with the investigation to come forward.
“Although this happened in the early hours, there would still have been a number of people around the area who may have seen the victim or suspects before or after the assault.”
Detective East continued:
“We are interested in speaking to the two men in these images, so if you recognise them, please don’t delay in calling the police.
“The victim in this case continues to receive support from specially trained officers. We have not had any further reports of similar assaults and this is being treated as an isolated incident.”
Anyone who has information on either of the men is encouraged to contact UN Safeguarding on 101 quoting 2330062/18 or to call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
