Man wanted after homophobic abuse left victims “very distressed”

Police in Westminster are asking for your help tracking down a man they want to speak to in connection with a homophobic incident in Charing Cross.

The incident, which took place in August, happened near Heaven nightclub on Villiers Street in Charing Cross.

Two men in their twenties were holding hands when they got approached by a man who began hurling homophobic abuse at them.

The suspect is described by police “as a slim white man in his early 30s wearing a black top, dark hooded jumper, jeans and trainers”.

“This is a shocking incident that has left both victims very distressed. We are keen to identify the man in the footage so we can speak to them about the incident. We would also urge anyone who witnessed the incident to contact us,” said PC Emma Rogers, from Westminster CID.

Anyone with information or any witnesses are asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
