A 13 year old girl's been sexually assaulted twice in broad daylight on Oxford's main shopping street.

A stranger came up to her as she was standing outside The Works bookshop on Cornmarket Street at lunchtime on Saturday 10 April 2010, and touched her inappropriately.

The same person then came back half an hour later and touched her inappropriately again, while she was standing outside HMV.

Police are trying to find people who saw either offence take place, or who saw the offender in the Cornmarket Street area around 12noon on Saturday.

The man's described as being between 30 and 45 years old, of medium build with short grey hair.  He was wearing light blue jeans and a polo shirt with horizontal light and dark grey stripes.

Anyone with information is asked to call Thames Valley Police on 0845 8 505 505 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
