A 29-year-old woman has been sexually assaulted in Dunstable.
It happened in the early hours of Sunday morning as she made her way home following a night out when she became aware of a man following her, according to Bedfordshire Police.
As she reached Bullpond Lane at its junction with Hawthorne Close he grabbed her and pushed her against a wall.
The victim shouted for help and screamed as the man repeatedly tried to touch her inappropriately over her clothing.
After a short time the man ran from the scene.
The man is described as black, 5ft 5in tall, with a chunky build, short dark hair and wore black trousers, black top, and black trainers.
