Subway Sex Assault CCTV
Detectives investigating a sexual assault in Bournemouth have released CCTV of a man they would like to speak too.
A 20-year-old woman was attacked in the subway under St Paul's roundabout in Springbourne at around 1.30am on Friday 1 February.
She was unexpectedly grabbed from behind by an unknown man, but luckily escaped without any serious injuries.
Detective Inspector Becky Riggs, of Bournemouth CID, said: "This unprovoked attack has left the victim very shaken and frightened.
"Following further enquiries, I am now able to release two CCTV images of a man we believe could help us with our investigation.
"I would urge the man pictured -and anyone who recognises him - to contact me, in confidence, as soon as possible."
No arrests have been made.
