Cheshire Police are appealing for witnesses following a serious sexual assault in Chester on Monday 2 February 2015. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Sometime between 10.30pm and 11pm a man in his 20s was near the footbridge which runs over the canal between Cambrian Road and Upper Cambrian Road when he was sexually assaulted. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The offender is described as white, aged between 40 to 50 years old and of average build. He was wearing a long trench coat and lace-up brown boots, one of which had no lace. He also drove a red car. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

DI Clare Coleman said: “This is obviously a very concerning incident and I want to reassure people that extra officers have been patrolling the area, while detectives are working to establish the identity of the offender. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Incidents like this are thankfully rare, however we would always urge people to follow basic safety advice and not walk alone, especially at night – try to stick to well-lit areas and always make sure someone knows where you are going and when you should be back.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Anyone with information should contact PC Lisa Whittle on 101 quoting incident number 1005 of 2 February 2015. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Alternatively information can be given anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
