The offender is described as being white, in his 30s to early 40s, short, of large build, had curly brown hair, wore a dark coloured suit, white/light coloured shirt and dark coloured tie.
This was an unprovoked and vicious attack on a sex worker which left her with a knife in her neck.
Fortunately, her injuries were not serious but she has been very lucky and we could have been dealing with a murder.
The community will understandably be concerned about what has happened however, we have increased patrols in the area and we are determined to find who is responsible.
We do need help from the public and I would ask anyone who may recognise the description of the man or who saw the attack take place near to the bridge, to contact us straight away.
Anyone with information should phone police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
