Police have released an E-Fit of a man as part of an investigation into a serious assault in Swindon last year.

"I know the incident happened a few months ago, but we hope this image will help to jog people's memories.

"Were you in the area around the time of the assault? Did you see anything suspicious, perhaps someone who matches this man's description?

"Please call us with any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem - it could be vital to our investigation."

The suspect is described as black, approximately 6ft 6ins tall and was wearing a ¾ length coat and black tracksuit in waterproof material with the hood up.
