'At 12.35pm on Thursday, November 5 a man, believed to be aged in his late 20s, was seen to walk around the Boots store in the Tandem Centre, Tandem Way, Colliers Wood without selecting any product.
'The man was caught on CCTV pretending to look at products behind a woman and then put his hand between the woman's legs and take pictures up her skirt on his mobile phone.
'He later returned and took further pictures of the same woman.
'A security guard at the store challenged the suspect, told him to delete the images and asked him to leave the store.
'The suspect is described as a slim, white man, 6ft tall with short brown hair and blue eyes.
'He was seen wearing a white T-shirt with a dark patch at the base and Adidas written across his chest. He wore navy blue tracksuit bottoms and brown shoes.
'Anyone with any information is asked to contact Merton Police on 101, quoting image 195987, or anonymously on Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.'That is a scarcely credible thing to have happened anywhere, never mind just round the corner.
