The 19-year-old was approached in the town centre by a man who convinced her to walk to the multi-storey car park off Queens Square with him.

West Midlands Police said the man took her to the fifth level where he began to hug and kiss her against her wishes.

The man is described by police as an Asian man in his late teens, of a slim build with a beard and a moustache. He was wearing a long, dark, grey coat when the assault took place on 2 March at around 3.45pm.

From CCTV inquiries in the area, we’ve identified a man we’d like to talk to about what happened, which is being treated as a sexual assault.

Whoever carried out this assault targeted a vulnerable young woman, who was left very scared by what happened.

I would urge anyone who knows the man’s identity to call us on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

– Detective Constable Tom Keady, West Midlands Police
