Serious Sex Assault On 15-Year-Old Girl

Police at Southampton have issued an e-fit of a man they're hunting after a serious sex assault on a 15-year-old girl.

Officers say it left the girl so upset that she did not tell anyone what had happened for several weeks.

It is believed that at about 4.30pm on a weekday in mid-April (possibly April 17), the girl was walking in Sandringham Road, Bitterne.  She became aware of a man following her, but she did not hear him approach because she was wearing headphones.

The man grabbed her, pushed her to the pavement and carried out a serious sexual assault. 

The man is described as about 30-40 and of mixed race.  He is between 5ft 8ins to 6ft tall and lanky with muscled arms.  His face is rounded with bushy eyebrows, slightly slanted eyes, a chunky straight mouth and light facial stubble.

He wore a black beanie hat, dark grey or black tracksuit bottoms, a dark or black hooded jumper and black trainers.

Anyone who recognises the man in the e-fit is asked to contact the Area Investigation Team at Southampton on 101.
