Police have released images of two men they would like to speak to as part of an investigation into a sexual assault in Old Street.

A woman in her 30s walking along Old Street at 7.55pm on Saturday July 25 was approached by two men one of whom then sexually assaulted her.

Scotland Yard said one of the men lifted the woman’s skirt and sexually assaulted her. After words were exchanged between the suspect and victim, a second man then elbowed her and pushed her into a wall, police said.

The two men walked away from the victim through Hoxton Square.

Police have now issued CCTV images of two men they think may be able to help with investigations.

The first is described as a white man, around 30-35-years-old, 6ft 2ins tall with dark brown hair and facial stubble. He was wearing a dark grey blazer, grey skinny jean and dark blue suede lace-up ankle boots.

The second man is described as a white man, around 25 to 30-years-old, 5ft 6ins tall with curly light brown hair. He was wearing a light blue shirt and light blue jeans.
