police launch probe after man is threatened with knife in binstead

Police are investigating a report of an attempted sexual assault in Bittern Close between 12.30am – 1am on Friday (5 April).

An 18-year-old woman was walking alone when a man approached her and punched her in the face. The victim fell to the ground and the attacker continued to punch her and tried to undo her jeans.

The victim was trying to push her attacker away when he gave up and ran off.

He was described as:

5’ 7” tall
Slim build
Wearing glasses
He was wearing a dark coloured hoody and jeans
This type of opportunistic attack is quite rare, however understandably it would have left the victim very shaken.

Did you witness the incident? Were you driving in the area at the time and have dashcam footage of a man matching the description of the suspect?

If you have any information, please contact police on 101, quoting reference number44190118921.
