POLICE are urgently looking for a man after a child was sexually assaulted in his bedroom at his home in Ickenham, England.

A CCTV image of the suspect who they believe was responsible for the horrifying assault on the young boy has now been released by the Metropolitan Police.

According to reports, on November 23, a man gained entry into a property on The Greenway road where he launched a sexual assault on the child as he was in his bed. As Euro Weekly News understands, the man fled the scene after the child told him that he would call the police.

In a statement, Detective Sergeant David Baldwin said:

“I’d like to thank members of the public who have called in so far to help with our investigation, as every piece of information matters.

“We are yet to identify a man we would like to speak to and so hope releasing this further image may help progress enquiries. 

 “This remains a well-resourced investigation, and the boy and his family continue to receive specialist support.

“We are not confirming his age in order to protect his identity.

“We know the suspect got on an E7 bus prior to the incident before he then boarded an underground train.

“Whilst incidents such as this are thankfully very rare, I encourage people to ensure that their homes are kept secure at all times and to report anyone acting suspiciously.”

The man captured in the CCTV image is described as white, of slim build with short hair and a beard. He was wearing blue jeans, T-shirt and a dark coloured coat at the time.

Anyone in the UK who recognises the man or who was in the area at the time is asked to call police on 101 quoting reference number: CAD145/23NOV.
