Image released of man in connection with assault on 14-year old girl

Police have released an image of a man in connection with an assault on a 14-year old girl as she walked to school in Newbury earlier this month.

The girl was walking through fields behind Barn Crescent and into an alleyway which leads into Essex Street on June 3 at around 8.10am when a man approached her and grabbed her from behind.

The girl managed to get away and was not injured.

The offender is described as white, aged in his late thirties to early forties, 5ft 10ins, of slim build, and was walking a dog.

Inspector Peter Edwards from Newbury police station said: "Fortunately the victim was not injured during this incident but obviously she was frightened by the experience.

"We are working to establish the exact circumstances of the incident and we are doing everything we can to trace the offender and ascertain what happened. I would urge anyone who recognises the man in the e-fit to contact the Force via 101."

If you don't want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
