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.

The alleged upskirting offence took place on Friday, June 16 but police have today released information.

Police Constable Dan Goswell, of Weymouth police, said: “This was understandably a distressing incident for the young victim, and we are conducting a number of enquiries into this matter.

“We have obtained a CCTV image of a man we would like to identify, and I would urge anyone with information regarding his identity to please contact us.

“We have also been making efforts to identify the witness who intervened and challenged the man but these have so far been unsuccessful. I would urge this woman to please make contact with us as she may have important information to assist our investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55230093760.

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

    Now imagine another five hundred just like him in our midst!
