Thames Valley Police is appealing for information following a sexual assault of two girls at the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort.
The offence happened at Castaway Camp in Pirate Shores, LEGOLAND, Windsor, between about 12.15pm and 12.30pm yesterday (11/8).
The offender touched the victims, two six-year-old girls, inappropriately.
The offender, who is not known to the victims, is a white man, in his teens or early twenties, possibly under 5ft 8ins. He was wearing dark-coloured slim fitting trousers, a dark-coloured T-shirt, and trainers.
Investigating officer, Det Insp Penny Mackenzie of the Child Abuse Investigation Unit, said: “Today we are appealing for the public’s help to find the offender who sexually assaulted two young girls at LEGOLAND.
“I would ask anyone who visited the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort yesterday, especially if you went to Castaway Camp in Pirate Shores, to check any photographs from your trip to see if you recognise anyone matching the offender.
“Also, if you recognise the offender’s description or have some other information, no matter how insignificant you think it is, we want to hear from you.
“The easiest way to pass us information about this incident is to e-mail us at URN615@thamesvalley.pnn.police.uk with the information you have & a contact telephone number. Alternatively, you can call 101 or visit your nearest police station. Please quote reference number URN 705 12/08.
“I would like to reassure the local community and visitors to LEGOLAND that such offences are extremely rare and that we are working closely with LEGOLAND to identify the suspect.
“If you do not want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.”
