E-Fit Appeal over sexual assault, Leeds

Police have released an e-fit image of a man they would like to speak to following a sexual assault on a woman in Leeds. 

Officers are continuing to appeal for information following the incident on a footpath off Middleton Grove near to the John Charles Centre for Sport, shortly after 9.20am on February 22. 


The victim, 20, was walking along the footpath when she overtook a man walking in front of her. He grabbed hold of her bag and jacket, pulling the victim towards him. She then noticed he was exposing himself and committing a lewd act.  


She managed to break free before running to a member of the public for help while the man continued to expose himself.  


He was described as white, aged 18 to 20, slim, about 5ft 10ins tall, with shaggy brown hair. He was described as wearing a black baggy top and grey jogging bottoms with what appeared to be black oil stains all over them. 


Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses or for anyone who recognises the man in the image to get in touch in connection with the incident.  


Anyone with any information is asked to contact Leeds District Safeguarding Unit via 101.
