Police seek man in connection with sexual assault of teenage girl

POLICE have released a sketch of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the sexual assault of a teenage girl in Rugby.

A man approached the girl and touched her inappropriately over her clothing before trying to take her coat off.

It happened while she was walking on a pathway between the end of Reservoir Road and Crowthorns in Brownsover at around 6.10pm on Saturday January 29.

The victim screamed, and the suspect then ran off into nearby woodland.

Investigating officers have released this sketch, done by a forensic artist, of a man they would like to speak to.

The suspect is white, aged 30-40, with blonde or light-coloured facial stubble and short stubble-like hair. He was thought to be wearing dark-coloured trousers and a black zipped-up puffer jacket.

Anyone who recognises the man pictured, or who may have seen or heard any suspicious behaviour in the area at the time, is asked to call Warwickshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 317 of January 29.

Information can also be given anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via their website.
