Thames Valley Police is appealing for information following a sexual assault on a woman in Milton Keynes.
The 19-year-old woman was walking across the V7 Saxon Street onto Lloyds, Coffee Hall, at around 11.10pm on Friday (17/1) when the incident happened.
As she was walking she became aware of an unknown man behind her, who walked up close to her and then sexually assaulted her.
The woman screamed out and told the man she was going to call the police, at which point the man walked away quickly up a Redway that runs between Trubys Garden and Button Grove.
The man is described as white, aged over 50, around 5ft 5ins tall with a medium build and short, greying hair. He was wearing reading glasses and dark coloured waist-length jacket that was zipped up.
PC Laura White said: “I am keen to speak to anyone who may have seen this man in the area and can provide us with any details of his movements, both before and after the assault.
“The woman was shaken by the incident, but thankfully didn’t sustain any physical injuries.
“This sort of offence is both rare and totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated by Thames Valley Police.”
If you have any information please contact PC White from Milton Keynes police station via the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101.
If you don’t want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
