POLICE are hunting for a man they would like to speak to after a woman was assaulted in Hampshire.

It was reported that a woman was assaulted unprovoked by a man she did not know in St Mary’s Churchyard in Fratton at around 3am on Tuesday, July 14.

The woman, in her 50s, sustained some facial injuries as a result but these did not require hospital treatment.

The man was described as white, very slim, aged in his late 20s or early 30s, with dark curly hair at ear length, a pale complexion, wide dark eyes and a round child-like face.

Daily Echo:

He was described as wearing a light-coloured top, round ‘Harry Potter’ style glasses and he had a rucksack on his back.
