POLICE have issued an efit of a man they are hunting after a sex attack on a teenage girl.

The girl was walking along North End Avenue in Portsmouth at just after 11.30am on Sunday when a man approached her and sexually assaulted her over her clothes.

She shouted at him and he ran off towards Gladys Avenue. He looked Oriental with dark hair and glasses and is thought to be in his 30s.

Det Con Pete Bambury said: ‘It’s very rare for this type of crime to happen in the daytime in a residential area.

I am hoping someone may have heard the girl shouting at the man or seen what happened or the man running off.

‘I’d ask anyone who has any information about this incident to get in contact with me at the Eastern Investigation Team at Fratton Police Station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.’
