E-fit Released In connection With Bolton Sexual Assault

    Police have released an e-fit of a man who sexually assaulted a woman and exposed himself to a man in Bolton.

    At around 1:05am on Saturday 6 August 2016, a 52-year-old man was sat at a bus stop on Great Moor Street when he was approached by another man who exposed himself before he was told to ‘get lost’ and walked away.

    He then crossed the road and approached a 27-year-old woman from behind before he sexually assaulted her and ran off back up Great Moor Street, turning left onto Newport Street.

    The offender is described as an Asian man in his early 20s with short dark hair, approximately 5ft 6in tall and of slim build with a young looking and smooth shaven face.

    He was wearing a black zip up jacket and grey sports style sweatshirt and black tracksuit bottoms with double white stripes down both legs.

    Detective Constable Dave Harris of GMP’s Bolton borough said: “This incident left both victims feeling very distressed and we are currently working to identify the man responsible.

    “If anybody recognises the man in the e-fit then I would urge them to please come forward and contact police.”

    Anybody with information should contact police on 101, quoting the incident number 280 of 06/08/16, or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
