E-fit of man
E-fit of man wanted for questioning by police in connection with sexual assaults on young girls at Legoland Windsor Thames Valley Police

Detectives have asked visitors to the Windsor resort to examine photos they took during the day to see if an alleged suspect is in the background, following a reported assault on two young girls at Legoland Windsor on Thursday (11 August).

"If you went to Legoland on Thursday please check any photographs you may have taken to see if you can spot anyone who looks like the man in this e-fit. If you have any photographs you want to share with us please email them." Detective Inspector Penny Mackenzie of the Thames Valley Police child abuse investigation unit said.

The two six-year-old girls were "touched inappropriately" during a trip to the tourist attraction. The assault is sad to have occurred between 12.15 and 12.30 BST at Castaway Camp in the Pirate Shores section of Legoland Windsor.

The man sought by police is white, in his late teens or early 20s, wearing a dark t-shirt, dark slim-fitting trousers, trainers and under 5ft 8in-tall. He is not believed to be known to the two children.

"We really need the public's help to find the offender and I would urge anyone who recognises the man in the e-fit to contact police," Mackenzie said.

She added: "I would like to reiterate that such offences are extremely rare. We are conducting a detailed investigation and working closely with Legoland in order to find the offender."

A spokesman for Legoland said in a statement: "On Thursday, August 11, the Legoland Windsor Resort team were alerted to an alleged assault that took place in the Castaway Camp playground.

"Our team members acted swiftly and the Thames Valley Police were immediately called.

"The safety and security of the families enjoying a day out with us is our number one priority.

"We are now working closely with the Police in assisting them with their investigation.

"Nothing of this nature has ever taken place at the Legoland Windsor Resort before and we are deeply shocked by the incident."
