Two women sexually assaulted in queue to see Queen’s lying in state, court told | UK News



Two women were sexually assaulted while queuing to see the Queen lying in state, a court heard.

Adio Adeshine, 19, is said to have exposed herself and pushed into the funeral from behind as they waited in line at Victoria Tower Gardens on Wednesday night.

He is said to have gone down the Thames in an attempt to evade police officers, before going out and being arrested.

Adeshine was remanded into custody on Friday after appearing at Westminster Magistrates Court charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of violating a sexual assault restraining order.

Outlining the charges, prosecutor Alex Adowale, said: “The defendant was part of the queue to see the rest of Queen Elizabeth II.”

His alleged victims are believed to be among the thousands who have lined up along the banks of the Thames to see the Queen’s coffin.

The court heard the first complainant allegedly took notice of Adeshine because she hadn’t seen him before, despite lining up with those people for hours.

She is said to have noticed him move closer to her before feeling something touch her back, then turning around to find him revealed.

The woman is said to have seen Adeshine act the same way towards another woman, before security was alerted and police called.

He is said to have thrown his phone into the Thames before getting into the water himself, but was arrested shortly after getting out of the river.
