Image released in connection with ongoing harassment investigation
The City of London Police have released a CCTV still of a man they are
looking to speak to in connection with a number of harassment incidents.
The victim, a 32 year old woman who works in the City, began receiving
letters and gifts from an unknown person on Thursday 11 August 2016. It is
believed that the sender saw the victim’s picture in a trade publication
and then began sending her unsolicited letters and parcels.
The first parcel contained an anonymous typed letter, two handwritten love
poems, a card and sweets; this was sent to the victim's work address in
Then in December 2016 another card, written in the same hand as the poems,
was delivered to the victim’s parents’ address in Surrey.
On Valentine’s Day this year (Tuesday 14 February 2017), the victim
received a third parcel at her place of work. This package contained a
Valentine’s card, a weatherproof hat and an old pair of sunglasses.
Detectives are keen to speak to the man in the image as it is thought he
may have significant information that could help their enquiries. This
image was captured in Dorking, Surrey.
