A woman was slashed across the bottom by a knifeman who calmly strolled away.
The shocking incident left the victim, a woman in her 20s, bleeding from her rear.
Met Police released shocking CCTV in a bid to track down the attacker, who struck at around 8:45pm on October 28, in Westminster, central London.
She was slashed across her bottom with a sharp object that left her with superficial wounds that required hospital treatment.
Police believe the incident was a random attack and are urging anyone who can identify the man featured in the CCTV to come forward.
He is believed to be of medium build and was wearing a big jacket and a hat.
Detective Constable Yousuf Bhamjee, from Westminster CID, said: “This assault has had a significant impact on the victim.
“I am appealing for anyone with information to get in touch with us.”

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
