POLICE are hunting a man who indecently assaulted a woman.

The 24-year-old victim was walking along Highlawn Way, Leigh Park, when she was approached by a man who grabbed hold of her arm.

As she turned round he exposed himself to her but she managed to break free and run off at about 6.55pm on Sunday.

PC Michael Clark said: ‘This incident has left the victim shaken and upset and we’re keen to trace the offender before he has a chance to repeat this kind of behaviour.

‘The victim states she first noticed the suspect standing at the bus stop in Middle Park Way.

‘She remembers passing a man walking a black and white border collie dog close to where the incident happened just before it.

‘The description she gave is excellent and we’re hoping somebody may recognise it and get in touch.’

The suspect was white, about 35 to 40 years old and around 5ft 8in.

He was slim with shoulder length, wavy and greasy dyed black hair with grey roots.

He had grey stubble, a long pointed nose and sunken eyes with a generally unwell appearance.

He wore a stone-washed denim jean jacket and a black top, black belt with large silver buckle and stone-washed denim jeans tucked into black steel toe-capped workboots.
