The CCTV released by Thames Valley Police

A WOMAN was the victim of a so-called 'upskirting' offence at an Oxfordshire store, police have said.

It is believed to be one the first reported cases of the offence across the Thames Valley, which only came into force in April.

On Monday May 13 the victim - a 21-year old woman - was at the Wilko store, Bridge Street, Banbury.

At about 1pm while she was shopping another woman approached her and said that a man had taken a photograph up the victim's skirt.

She then reported the incident to police and the force have now released a CCTV image of a man they want to speak to in connection.

Investigating officer, PC Anthony Cossar said: “We are releasing a CCTV image of man who we believe may have vital information about the incident.

"If you are the man, or know who he is then please contact the force as soon as possible.

“We are also want to speak to the female witness who informed the victim that the offence had taken place.

“If you have information about the man in the CCTV, believe you know who the witness is, or have any information that may help our investigation then please come forward."

To contact police call 101 or visit a police station quoting reference number 43190143158.

Under the Voyeurism (Offences) Act 2019 upskirting became a specific sexual offence under the existing Sexual Offences Act 2003.

It came into force on April 12.
