Woman Sexually Assaulted Whilst Jogging

A woman was sexually assaulted while out jogging in Hatfield.

She was on Woods Avenue between 4pm and 5.30pm on Thursday June 23 when she saw two men smiling at her.

One of them said something to her and then pushed her up against a tree before sexually assaulting her. Both men then left.

The first suspect is described as a black man, about 6ft tall, a slim but not skinny build, aged 19 to 20, with short dark hair and a clean-shaven face. He was wearing a black hooded top and blue jeans.

The second was described as a black man and who is slightly shorter than the first suspect and wearing a black baseball cap.

Detective Constable Karen Warner, investigating from the Sexual Offences Investigation Team, said: "I would reassure people that these types of incidents are not common in Hatfield, which is why we are keen to find out who is responsible and prevent any similar incidents. 

"Someone may have seen this incident take place. You may have been driving or walking past, or live in the area and seen the men acting suspiciously around the time it took place, or even seen the victim out jogging."
