It remains unclear if the man really jabbed any substance into the woman, but she went to the local hospital for a checkup and didn’t suffer any ill effects.

Detective Inspector Kevin Ives from the Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit of the City of London Police said:

“This is a disgusting and totally unacceptable assault on a member of the public which won’t be tolerated.

We are appealing to anyone who may have information that could assist us in identifying this man to get in touch. It is crucial we catch him as soon as possible as not only is he defrauding individuals of money, he may endanger people’s lives.”
