Hampshire police are appealing for information after a woman was sexually assaulted on the Isle of Wight.
The incident happened between midnight and 12.45am on Tuesday 27th August.
A woman had just been to the cashpoint at Lloyds Bank in Cowes when she was grabbed behind by an unknown man who then sexually assaulted her.
The 32-year-old victim managed to hit out at him and he fled from the scene of the attack.
DI Martin Chudley said: “We are appealing for witnesses to this serious sexual assault, which took place during the early hours of Tuesday morning. Officers would like to hear from anyone who was out at around that time, and who may have seen or heard anything that may assist the investigation."
