AN IMAGE has been released of the man police are searching for after a woman was sexually assaulted.
The incident happened at around 1.10am on Sunday (August 25) when the victim was walking home after a night out through the underpass which runs from Union Street under the Alvechurch Highway and comes out at Holloway Drive in Lodge Park.
As she neared the end of the subway, a man appeared and offered to walk her home. She declined the offer and the man then sexually assaulted her.
The offender, whose image has been compiled with help from the victim, was Asian, aged 28 to 30, 5ft 7in and of medium build. He had short black hair which was styled so it pointed up slightly in the middle, distinctive facial hair and was wearing a dark-coloured jacket.
Detective constable Stacey Keogh said: "Thankfully, the victim managed to get away from him and was not badly hurt during the assault.
"However, she has understandably been left extremely upset by the incident and it is important that we identify the man responsible.
"During the assault, the woman’s shoes – a pair of nude, peep toe high heels – came off. They have not yet been located and we are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen or found them.
"The offender spoke with a local accent and we are therefore hopeful that someone in the area will recognise this individual and contact us with a name.
"Even if people are unsure but think this is someone they know, or if they suspect who might have been involved, then they should pick up the phone. Every piece of information we get could be vital."
Anyone with any information should call police on 0300 333 3000, quoting reference number 75-s-250813, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
