CCTV released after Cheltenham upskirting incident

Officers have issued CCTV images of a man they need to speak to in connection with an upskirting incident in Cheltenham last month.

It happened on Hales Road between 3.15pm-3.20pm on Tuesday 14 July.

A teenage girl was walking along the road in the direction of Oakley and as she reached the junction of Eldon Road she realised a man was very close behind her.

When she turned around she noticed a camera lens protruding from his bag positioned to view up her skirt.

Following other enquiries, including local house to house, officers are now turning to the public for help.

Anyone who recognises the person in the image is asked to call 101 and quote incident 331 of 14 July.

Alternatively, information can be reported online via www.gloucestershire.police.uk or anonymously via the independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

‘Upskirting’ – which became a criminal offence in April last year, is a colloquial term referring to the action of placing equipment such as a camera or mobile phone beneath a person’s clothing to take a voyeuristic photograph without their permission. It is not only confined to victims wearing skirts or dresses and equally applies when men or women are wearing kilts, cassocks shorts or trousers.
