A man has been found guilty of sexual assault following a trial at Southwark Crown Court.

Daniel Omozusi (19.02.1980) of Hackney, East London was convicted on Wednesday, 10 July and will be sentenced at the same court on Friday, 2 August.

The court heard that on Monday, 26 November 2018, Omozusi approached a woman just outside Oxford Circus underground station and grabbed her buttock.

The victim, aged 35, turned around and challenged him but he denied the offence and tried to flee the scene.

As he was doing so, the victim was able to take a number of photos on her phone which she later provided to police.

As part of the investigation, a media appeal including the photo taken by the victim was launched, leading to the identification of Omozusi.

He was arrested by officers on Wednesday, 2 January where he admitted his actions.Detective Constable Faisal El Issaoui, from the Met’s Central North CID, said: “The victim in this case played a significant role in bringing Omozusi to justice and we commend her for her quick thinking and reporting his actions to police, which enabled us to identify this dangerous offender.

“We hope this conviction demonstrates how seriously we take sexual offences of any nature and encourages others subject to the same behaviour to come forward and report it.”
