Police have released a CCTV image of a man they want to speak to after a teenage girl was attacked in Castleford.

The attack happened on 5 July as the 15-year-old walked home from school.

She was followed by a man along Wilson Street, Saville Road and Moss Street, before he dragged her into a ginnel an attempted to sexually assault her. It is then thought he was disturbed by passers by and ran off.

It is as officers investigate a second attack in the area, although they are not believed to be linked at this stage. On 28 June a 32-year-old woman was subjected to a serious sexual assault in a wooded area off Leeds Road.

Detectives are carrying out enquiries in the area and officers are providing reassurance to local residents.
