Six-year-old girls assaulted at LEGOLAND Windsor

Police are appealing for information after two girls, aged six, were assaulted by a man thought to be in his late-teens or earlier twenties.

The attack, which occurred between 12:15pm and 12:30pm on Thursday, took place in the park’s Castaway Camp area.

In a statement, a spokesperson for LEGOLAND Windsor said: “Our team members acted swiftly and the Thames Valley Police were immediately called. The safety and security of the families enjoying a day out with us is our number one priority.

“We are now working closely with the Police in assisting them with their investigation. Nothing of this nature has ever taken place at the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort before and we are deeply shocked by the incident.

The offender, who was not known to either of the victims, is described as around 5ft 8ins tall, and is said to have been wearing slim fitting trousers, a dark t-shirt and trainers.

It is not known if the offender was visiting the theme park with children or by themself, a policy which the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre in Manchester has clamped down on in recent years. Regarding the differing policy to the midway attraction, the LEGOLAND Windsor spokesperson commented: “The LEGOLAND Windsor Resort is a very different attraction: it’s a large space, with features appealing to the whole family and many adult fans of LEGO.

“A blanket exclusion of adults not enjoying the Resort without Children is not appropriate. We have numerous security measures in place across the 150 acre site and monitor all guests enjoying a day out with us.”

Witnesses are asked to email police on URN615@thamesvalley.pnn.police.uk. Alternatively, anyone with information can call 101 or the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
