Thames Valley Police have released an image of a man they want to speak to after a woman was sexually assaulted in Kidlington.

The incident happened at about 4.50pm on Friday 6th October. The victim, a woman in her twenties, was walking along an alleyway between Oxford Road and Crown Road when she was approached from behind by a man who grabbed her arm. When she turned around, he exposed himself and then left the scene.

“Understandably, this has been a very distressing incident for the victim, and she is being supported by the investigation team at this time.

“We would ask anyone with any information, or anyone who noticed anything suspicious in the area at the time, to contact police on 101.

“We are carrying out an investigation into this offence, and would like to hear from anyone who may have any information relevant to the investigation.

“If anyone recognises the man in the E-fit please contact police immediately."
