Swindon: Fresh Appeal Over Sex Assault

Detectives in Swindon investigating a sexual assault in November have now released a computer generated image of a man they would like to speak to about the attack.

Police say a man attacked a 34-year-old woman as she walked through the Lincoln Street area just after 11pm on Thursday, 27th November.

Immediately afterwards, her attacker ran off in the direction of Euclid Street. 

As well as the e-fit, police have released CCTV footage of a man, who is not considered a suspect, but who they say might have ''vital information'' about what happened. 

He is described as white, wearing a dark coloured long sleeved top and jeans, and was seen walking along Regent Circus in the direction of Groundwell Road. 

Detective Constable Adam Leakey said: "We are extemely keen to hear from anyone who recognises either the man pictured in the e-fit or the man seen on the CCTV footage. 

''Any information about either man could be critical to our enquiries. 

"I cannot state highly enough how distressing this incident was for the victim and we are determined to find the person responsible and bring them to justice." 

Anyone with any information is asked to contact DC Adam Leakey on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously. 

Victims of sexual assault are also asked to contact the Sexual Assault Referral Centre (New Swindon Sanctuary) on 0808 168 0024 for confidential advice and support.
