Police investigate nightclub sexual assault

Dorset Police are investigating a sexual assault on a woman in a nightclub.

The woman, in her 20s, was approached from behind by a man in Boombox on the Esplanade in Weymouth on Saturday 13 January.

The man pressed up against her and touched her inappropriately on the chest. The woman challenged the man, but he did it again a short time later. An altercation then took place between them, before the man was kicked out of the club.

Officers say the assault has had "a significant impact on the victim, who remains very upset."

We have been making various enquiries into the incident and only now are we in a position to issue a public CCTV appeal in order to identify someone who may hold valuable information in relation to what happened.

I would appeal to anyone who is able to identify the man pictured, or who has any information that could assist with the investigation, to please contact Dorset Police.
