This is The West Country: Police appeal: sexual assault Police appeal: sexual assault

POLICE would like to speak to this man after a woman was sexually assaulted in Cheddon Road on November 27.

A 20-year-old woman was followed by a man as she walked through the town centre at around 2.35am before he grabbed and assaulted her by Kilkenny House.

Police have released this series of CCTV images of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.

The first image shows the man on a bike in The Parade at around 2.11am and then by Pitcher and Piano off Corporation Street.

He is then shown without his bike and with his hood up working past the Money Shop in North Street and then the Crown and Sceptre pub in Station Road.

The man in the images is described as white, around 5ft 8ins, skinny build, in his late thirties with stubble.

He was wearing a green jacket with a hood over the top of a light coloured grey or white hooded top, and loose fitting cream or light coloured trousers.

Investigating officer Det Con Darren Bowden said: "Following further investigative work we are now able to release this series of images which shows a man initially cycling past the victim (not pictured) and then later walking behind her through the town centre.

"It was a period of around 20 minutes from the first CCTV image to the time the victim was assaulted.

"I can confirm we are taking a close look into whether there is a link between this incident and any others in the area.

"Two men previously arrested in connection with this investigation have been released without charge and we are now focussing on identifying the man in these images and we are asking the public to help us with this.

"If you think your recognise him, please call in with a name or any information you have – it could prove to be crucial to our inquiry."

If you recognise the man or can help with the investigation, contact Det Con Darren Bowden on the 24-hour non-emergency number 101.
