Police are hunting a sex attacker who assaulted a 15-year-old girl
Detectives have revealed that the attack left the girl so upset that she did not disclose what had happened for several weeks.
It is believed that at about 4.30pm on a weekday in mid-April -possibly April 17 - the girl was walking in Sandringham Road, Bitterne.
She became aware of a man following her, but she did not hear him approach because she was wearing headphones.
The man grabbed her, pushed her to the pavement and carried out a serious sexual assault.
