Police in Chester are urging any witnesses to come forward following a sexual assault in the City.

The assault took place at around 4.30pm on Saturday, 10 June, when a 21-year-old woman was walking along Chester walls. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Detectives believe there would have been witnesses to the assault as the area would have been busy. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The young woman walking past the Bell Tower Walk turn, just past the Eastgate Clock when she was approached from behind by a man. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The man tried to “initiate contact” by touching woman police say, she turned to him and shouted, the man then walked away quickly in the direction of Abbey Street. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Officers want to trace the man who they describe as white, of a medium build with mousey brown or blonde hair with a quiff. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

He is believed to be aged in his late thirties and was wearing a purple coloured jumper. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Detective Sergeant Nick Henderson, of Chester Local Policing Unit, said:

It is highly unusual for an incident like this to happen in Chester. We believe it would have been busy around this time of the day and therefore certain someone must have seen something. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

I would urge anyone who saw a man matching this description or who may have been in the area around the time the incident took place to come forward. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Information can be passed on to Cheshire Police by calling 101 and quoting incident 713 of 10 June or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
