Middle-aged woman surrounded by gang of men and sexually assaulted during terrifying ordeal in west London
A middle-aged woman was surrounded by a group of men before being slapped and sexually assaulted during a terrifying attack in a west London street, police said.
The victim, in her 40s, was approached by a gang of up to five Asian men as she walked through Hounslow on a weekday evening.
Scotland Yard said one of the men from the group slapped and then sexually assaulted the victim in Kingsley Road, a short walk from Hounslow East Tube station near the junction with Cecil Road.
A spokesman added: “There was a short verbal exchange between the suspect and victim whilst the rest of the group closed in on her.
“The main suspect then made further physical contact with the victim.”
