Southend: Efit Released After Sexual Assault
An efit has been released of a man suspected of sexually assaulting a woman in Southend.
The victim, who's in her 20s and from the town, was attacked while at a grassy area near Clifton Terrace on October 10th, 2012.
Since then detectives have carried out extensive enquiries to trace the offender, including with local homeless shelters, but no arrests have been made.
DI Mark Tyler said: "It is thought the man frequents local night shelters, however so far we have been unable to establish any further details about him."
The man is described as white with mousey brown hair and is aged somewhere between 21 and 40-years-old.
He is 5ft 8ins to 6ft tall, of stocky build and has a pierced right ear. At the time of the incident he wore a pink McKenzie polo shirt with 1974 printed on it, light coloured chino trousers, white trainers and was carrying a JD Sports bag with a Union Jack design.
He carried this on his left side. Anyone who can identify the man is asked to contact detectives at Southend on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Michael Barrymore is entitled to "more than nominal" damages against Essex Police over his wrongful arrest.
A man has been jailed for four years and banned from driving for five years after a fatal crash in Weeley Heath.
"Have fun in a safe environment" is Essex Police's message to festival-goers this year as Chelmsford gears up for the V Festival.
