Officers investigating a serious sexual assault in Nottingham have issued a fresh appeal for information nearly a month on from the attack.

The incident happened in North Sherwood Street at around 2.45am on 4 April 2019.

A man approached a lone woman and physically assaulted her before committing a sexual assault.

Police enquiries are ongoing and officers investigating the incident have been conducting house-to-house enquiries, handing out fresh appeal posters and visiting businesses in the local area this week as part of their investigations.

The suspect is believed to be aged in his 20s to early 30s.

Detective Inspector Kylie Westlake said: “It is now nearly four weeks on from this attack. We’re continuing to work hard on the case and investigating lines of enquiry but the offender is yet to be traced.

“These types of incident are rare, but I would like to reassure the local community that we are doing everything we can to apprehend the person responsible.

“I believe that someone will know who our suspect is and I’d ask them to search their conscience and get in touch with us so we can get justice for the victim involved in this incident.

“We believe the man pictured in our appeal poster may have information that can help our investigation.

“He was wearing a black Adidas tracksuit top with a black top underneath which has white writing on it, black trousers, light-coloured trainers and a black baseball cap.

“If this is you or you know who he is then we’d urge you to please come forward.

“Similarly, anyone with any other relevant information, who has not yet spoken to police, is asked to contact us immediately.”Even the smallest amount of information could be vital to our investigation.”

Anyone with any information is urged to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 58 of 4 April 2019, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
