"Detectives are making enquiries into the circumstances surrounding a sexual assault on this woman and the theft of her handbag.

“These events are believed to have happened in the area of Bedford Place, Polygon, Southampton during the early hours of Tuesday morning, December 17, 2013.

"There is no information to suggest this report is linked to any other crimes or cases.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact detectives in Southampton CID on 101.
