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.
