POLICE have issued this e-fit of a man suspected of carrying out an indecent assault.

A 58-year-old woman was approached in Paradise Street, Portsmouth, by a man she did not know at around 5.50am on Monday.

The man indecently touched the woman and made inappropriate remarks to her. She confronted him about his behaviour and he ran away.

The suspect was described as white, about 25-30, 5ft 7-8ins and of skinny build with scruffy dark-ginger hair and a ginger beard. He was wearing a light brown mac.

PC Mark Berwick said: ‘Police would appeal to anybody who has information about the indecent assault to come forward and assist in any way they can to help identify the person responsible for this crime.’
