Peterborough: Woman Sexually Assaulted

A woman has been assaulted while walking along a street in Peterborough.

Cambridgeshire Police say the 26 year old woman was walking in West Town, and was approached by a youth.

The youth asked her twice for a cigarette, then sexually assaulted her in Nicholls Avenue.

Another woman then approached on foot, and the attacker walked away.

The victim called a relative who contacted police. 

The youth is described as Asian, 15 to 20, slim, about 5'7", with bushy eyebrows and was wearing a dark clothing and possibly a skull cap. 

DC Sarah Morley said: "This was a terrifying experience for the victim and I am keen to find the youth responsible as soon as possible.

In particular, I would appeal for the woman who disturbed the attacker to come forward as she might have important information. 

Anyone with information should not hesitate to get in touch."

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Morley on 101 Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
