Police are appealing for information after a woman was sexually assaulted in Portsmouth.

The 19-year-old victim was walking along Bradford Road in the early hours of yesterday morning when she was approached by a man who tried to talk to her.

When she ignored him, the man pulled her underpants, causing them to rip off. He then ran away with the underwear.

The man police want to speak to is described as -

  • White
  • Aged between 20 and 23
  • Of a skinny build and with a skinny pale face
  • 5ft 11ins to 6ft
  • Wearing a black / dark blue hooded top with the hood up
  • Wearing tracksuit bottoms which matched his top

“At this time we believe this was an isolated incident. We would like to speak to anyone who has any information about this incident.

“As always we would ask people to avoid walking alone at night. Keep to well lit areas and try to stay with friends. If you see anyone acting suspiciously or have any information about this incident, please call us immediately."
