E-fit released following sexual assault

Police investigating a reported sexual assault in the city centre earlier this year have released an e-fit image of a man they would like to identify.

At around 3.30pm on Tuesday 25 September, it is reported that a 28-year-old woman was walking down Furnival Street when a man walking in the opposite direction grabbed her, sexually assaulting her as he passed by.

Since the incident was reported, officers have examined CCTV footage and recently spoken to two further witnesses, who have now provided the e-fit.

Officers are keen to speak to anyone who may recognise the man, who is described as wearing a green scarf.

If you have any information about the incident, or know who the man is, please call 101 quoting incident number 432 of 25 of September 2018.

You can also pass information to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
