Police are appealing for witnesses after a woman was sexually assaulted as she walked in Forest Town in Mansfield, in the early hours of Sunday.

At 2.30am, the woman was approached from behind by a man in Main Avenue. She was dragged into an alley and sexually assaulted.

The victim had been out with her friends in the town centre, and she had walked along Bath Lane, Ravensdale Road, Sherwood Hall Road, Clipstone Road West and onto Main Avenue towards Forest Town.

Her attacker - who has an eastern European accent - fled the scene on foot in the direction of Clipstone Road West. He was wearing a short grey coat with reflective strips on his back.

Officers are appealing for anyone who may have seen the man or his victim on Sunday morning to come forward with information.

“Thankfully, these kinds of attacks by strangers are rare and we will be thoroughly investigating to help identify the man responsible, as well as continuing to support the victim and increasing our patrols in the area to reassure residents.”
