Thames Valley Police has issued a picture of a man it would like to speak to in connection with a sexual assault on an elderly woman at a city care home.

In September 2010, a 70-year-old woman was sexually assaulted by a carer while being washed.

The victim did not report the matter at the time, but told female carers a year later. Thames Valley Police was first notified on September 21 last year and an investigation was launched.

It was discovered the carer had used false details to obtain a job at the care home and his true identity is not known.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Liz Batchelor, based at Bletchley police station, said: “There is a concern this man may be working at another care home so we are very keen to trace him.

“I would urge anyone who recognises the man in the photograph to come forward as soon as possible.”

If you can help, please contact Det Con Batchelor via the 24-hour Police Enquiry Centre on 101.

If you don’t want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.
