Police are investigating whether two sex attacks on women in Berkshire within hours of each other could be linked.
A 25 year old woman was walking near the Market Inn in Bracknell at 1am on Friday morning when she was assaulted.
She was grabbed and dragged towards a bush where the offender tried to remove her clothing.
However, the victim managed to get away and ran from the scene, uninjured.
The offender is described as a white man, who may have been aged in his thirties. He was wearing a dark blue jumper.
Just a few hours earlier, in Winnersh, a woman was grabbed in a similar way.
On that occasion the woman's dog managed to fight off her attacker and she escaped unhurt.
Speaking of the assault in Bracknell, Detective Inspector Jason Liles of the Force Intelligence Hub, said: “The victim of this incident showed great bravery in managing to get away from this offender, and she is being supported by specially trained officers following what was an extremely frightening experience.
