Avon & Somerset Police have released an E-fit (below) of a man they’d like to identify in connection with the assault. Detective Inspector Rachel Whelan said: “We’re doing everything we can to support the victim of this incident who is understandably shaken by what happened. We’re keen to hear from anyone who recognises the man depicted in the image well as anyone who was in the area around the time who saw anyone acting suspiciously.

Neighbourhood officers will be carrying out patrols of the area to provide reassurance to the local community. If you have any concerns please do approach them.

If you can help, please call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5222267347.
