Kent Police have intensified their investigation into a reported sexual assault that occurred in Newington, releasing a CCTV image of a man who might have crucial information.

The incident, which took place on Playstool Road around 3.40 am on Saturday 16 December 2023, involved an alleged inappropriate physical contact by a taxi passenger. According to reports, the man in question leaned across and touched a woman over her clothes in an unacceptable manner, accompanied by an obscene comment.

In an effort to advance their investigation, Kent Police have now released a CCTV image of a man who they believe could significantly assist with their enquiries. The image, captured in the vicinity of the incident, is hoped to lead to the identification of the individual involved.

Authorities are urging anyone who recognises the man in the image or has any information regarding the incident to come forward. This appeal to the public is a crucial step in ensuring that those responsible for such acts are held accountable and to prevent similar occurrences in the future.

Members of the public with any information are encouraged to contact Kent Police.
