POLICE have released an 'Evofit' of an Eastern European man they want to speak with after a woman complained she was sexually assaulted in Lancaster.

The offence took place sometime between 2am-3am on Monday December 16, said police.

The 25-year-old victim claimed she had been approached by a man as she walked home along St Peters Road in the city after a night out.

As the woman walked along the path that cuts between St Peters Road and Moore Lane, the man has asked the victim for a cigarette before grabbing the victim around her hips and pushing her to the floor before sexually touching her over her clothing, said police.

The victim screamed and managed to fight off her attacker, said police.

Police are now appealing for witnesses to come forward.

DC Rachel Killinger, said: “This was obviously a very distressing incident for the victim but fortunately she was not hurt. I would appeal to anybody that recognises this man or with any information that could assist us with our investigation to contact us on 101.

“I would reassure people that police patrols have been increased in the area and we are doing all we can to find the man responsible.”

The offender is described as being between 25-32 years old with short blonde hair, dark eyes and a pointed nose. He was wearing a grey baggy hoody and spoke with an Eastern European accent.
