Police reveal face of sex attacker who struck in East Park, Southampton
THIS is the face of a sex attacker who assaulted a woman as she walked alone through a Hampshire park.
Police have this afternoon released the computer-generated picture of the fiend who struck in the early hours of last Saturday, December 29.
The victim, aged 18, was walking home from a night out and took a route through East Park around 4am when she was approached by the man who started to talk to her.
He then sexually assaulted her before she managed to push him away, however he followed her to the Edge nightclub in St Mary's Road where she raised the alarm.
The man is described as white, in his 30s, 5ft 6ins tall and of average build. He has a round face and was bald and spoke English but with a foreign accent.
Detective Constable Victoria Boddy said “While this kind of incident remains relatively rare in our city, we would always advise people to avoid walking through dark or lonely areas on their own at night and stick to well lit pavements where there are other people around.
"I would like to hear from anyone who witnessed this incident or saw the man with the woman around 4am. I'd also like to hear from anyone who thinks they recognise the man from the efit or his description.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Boddy at Shirley CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
