Police are appealing for witnesses and information following a sexual assault in St Albans in the early hours of Friday morning.
The incident occurred between 3.30am and 3.45am as the victim, a woman in her 20’s, walked along Blundell Close. She was grabbed from behind by the offender who pushed her to the floor on a grassy area and sexually assaulted her.

Detective Inspector Dee Perkins from the Sexual Offences Investigation Unit is leading the investigation and said: “I would like to appeal to anyone who may have been in the area in the early hours of this morning and who saw anything suspicious to contact police. Understandably this incident has left the victim extremely shaken and she is being supported by specialist officers. We fully appreciate these crimes can cause concern within the community but I would like to reassure people that we are fully investigating the incident.”
