The incident took place on October 13 last year at around 10:30 pm in the doorway of the restaurant.

Police received a report that a woman was standing in the doorway when two men who she did not know walked past and grabbed her breasts without her consent, before walking into the curry house.

The victim was left incredibly shaken and distressed by the incident and immediately reported it to police.

Enquiries have been ongoing and officers have reviewed CCTV from the area and are now asking for any witnesses or people with information to come forward.

Police have also issued an image of a male who was in the area at the time of the incident and could have information that can assist.

The man, or anyone who thinks they can help is asked to contact police by calling 101 or using the Tell us Something page quoting crime reference 112552J/21.
