Harrods boss questioned over claims he assaulted 15-year-old in his shop

Harrods boss MOHAMED AL FAYED has been questioned by police over allegations he sexually assaulted a teenager in his famous store.

The multi-millionaire was quizzed for over two hours today over claims that he indecently assaulted the 15-year-old girl, who made the complaint to British police in July this year.

She claimed a "Harrods executive" had forced himself on her and kissed her while she was shopping in the London store with her mother, who she later confided in.

A spokesman for Scotland Yard said: 'We can confirm that a man attended a West London Police Station by prior arrangement and was questioned under caution.

'He was questioned in relation to an allegation of sexual assault on a girl under 15 at a business premises in Central London. The allegation was made in May 2008.'
