Police have released CCTV of a man they would like to identify after a report of an upskirting offence.

It was reported that a 14-year-old girl was in the Tesco Express store on Portland Road in Wyke Regis when a man was seen allegedly trying to take photos underneath her skirt.

A woman challenged the man and made the victim aware of what happened, and the man was subsequently seen leaving the store in the direction of Sunnyside Road.

Police are also trying to identify a witness who may be able to assist in their investigation.

  1. From this photograph, I wonder what we may surmise about this man’s cultural and religious background.
