Wiltshire Police have released CCTV images of a man we need to speak to in relation to a sexual assault in Swindon.
The incident happened on 12/04/20 when the victim, a woman in her 20s, was approached in Sanford Street.
The suspect made sexual comments to the woman and touched her inappropriately.
He is described as Asian, around 5ft 6ins tall, of heavy build, and wearing light jeans and a light grey hoodie with a black shirt underneath.
Local Crime Investigator Veneta Hannibal, from Swindon Community Policing Team, said: “This was a distressing incident for the victim – although she wasn’t physically injured, it was very frightening.
“The incident was reported to us quickly, and we have been carrying out a thorough investigation, including speaking to local businesses.
“Following enquiries, we now have some CCTV images to release and although we appreciate that they aren’t that clear, we have been unable to get anything of better quality.
“Please, if you recognise the man pictured, or you recognise the description of the suspect, call us to tell us what you know.”
