Investigations are continuing into a sexual assault in Huntingdon.

A woman was attacked as she walked across Spring Common, also known as Horse Common, between 8pm and 9pm on Saturday 8th January.

She was grabbed from behind, pushed to the ground and sexually assaulted.

The victim eventually managed to break free after scratching the man in the face, kicking and punching him.

The attacker then ran off.

He's described as six feet tall, large build, with a shaved head, in his late 30s to early 40s and wearing a dark jumper, pink shirt and jeans.

Since the attack, officers have searched the scene, carried out door-to-door enquiries and interviewed the victim several times.

Detective Sergeant Amerjit Singh, who is investigating said: "I would like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time of this incident or who thinks they may know the man.

The offender is likely to have gone home with injuries to his face.

At this time we are treating this as an isolated incident and there is no need for people to take any precautions further to common sense steps I would expect people to take everyday."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det Sgt Singh on 0345 456 456 4 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 55 111.
