Grantham police appeal: Do you know these men?

A man kissed a three-year-old girl

Update: 3pm on 30 June

We have now identified the two men in the CCTV footage, and our investigation is ongoing.

Thank you to everyone who has contacted us, and for sharing the appeal.

Original release: 5.11pm on 28 June

We are looking for these two males in relation to an incident which occurred along Barrowby Gate in Grantham on Wednesday, 22 June at approximately 2.55pm.

A mother was walking along this road with her three-year-old daughter as two men approached her. A male in the white and grey jacket bent down and kissed the three-year-old girl on the face before walking away.

The distressed mother tried to confront the men, but they just walked away, with a male in a red top laughing. They left the scene, heading towards Dysart Road.

We appreciate the CCTV footage is blurry, but this was a particularly distressing incident for those involved.

We are appealing for anyone who may recognise this pair based on their distinctive clothing to please come forward with any information you have to help us identify these men.
