“This is a really concerning incident that took place in a busy public area during the middle of the day. We are aware that this footage may be distressing however we are appealing for anyone in the area on Sunday 27 October, or those who may have recorded dashcam footage nearby which might help us to identify the offender, to contact us. We would also urge you to study the CCTV footage carefully to see if you recognise the man who carried out this appalling assault. Please consider showing this footage to friends and family members that do not have access to social media to ensure that the footage is viewed by as many members of the community as possible.”
This video has been shared with the victims’ consent. The witness on the bicycle has been identified and is assisting with the investigation.
