12 November, 2020 — By Bronwen Weatherby
DETECTIVES are seeking to identify two potential witnesses after a six-year-old boy was touched inappropriately inside the toilets of a McDonald’s in King’s Cross.
The child was with his mother in the fast food chain restaurant on Euston Road at around 8pm on Wednesday 25 April, 2018, when the incident happened.
After their visit he told his mum that a man had sexually touched him while they were both inside the men’s toilet area.
A recent review of the investigation has revealed new lines of enquiry, including these images taken from CCTV and released today of two men who were in the area at the time and could help crack the case.
DC Brian Simmonds, from the Central North Command Unit’s public protection team, said: “These two men, who we do not believe are known to each other, both happened to be in the same area of the McDonalds as the child at the relevant time, but we have not been able to trace them to date. We would be very grateful if they would come forward and contact us.
“I would stress again that they are not in any way suspects – we believe they might have some important information that could help us in this case.”
