Well what a vague description and yet another photo that could be compared to the earliest surviving photograph cira 1826 or 1827:taken by Nicéphore Niépce's in Varennes. In fact the latter is about the same quality of detail . I very much doubt this blokes Mother could identify him ,but then again would she want to ?

And most people have forgotten what happened last week, let alone a month ago.

The image is better than none, the right person will know who it is.

Mama mia! What do they mean by 'skater' appearance?

I don't see a skateboard - perhaps he put it down before touching her breast?

I think any "right " person may be close to the offender so what are the chances of nearest & dearest ,friends or relatives grassing him up , quite slim I reckon .

The image is useless, there is no way a conviction can be made from that image.
