Police are appealing for information after a woman was sexually assaulted in Cambridge.

The victim, in her 30s, was walking across Parker's Piece at about 5.30am on Tuesday (11th October) when she was grabbed by a man who assaulted her.

The offender is described as being Asian, in his 20s, about 5'8'' with short hair and a foreign accent. He was wearing a dark green jacket with a fur-lined hood, blue jeans with a brown belt.

Police have increased patrols in the area. The assault is not being linked with any other incidents at this stage.

Detective Inspector Karry Beeby, investigating, said:

"This is being treated as an isolated incident. I would appeal to anyone with any information about this incident to contact police.

I would remind people to be vigilant when out in the city during the hours of darkness and follow the usual crime prevention advice.

Cambridge is a safe city to live in, but I would remind people to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of crime by keeping to well-lit paths and walking in pairs or groups where possible."

Anyone with any information should call DI Beeby on 0345 456 456 4 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
