A woman in her 20s has been sexually assaulted in Bristol.

The victim was attacked from behind in Henry Street, Totterdown, on Monday 12 November at 9.45pm.

This was a frightening ordeal for the victim and I’d like to reassure the local community that a full investigation is already under way.

During the incident, the victim fought back, resulting in the offender running off, but as she didn’t see her attacker she hasn’t been able to give us a description.

– Det Insp Dave Lewis

Officers are carrying out extra patrols in Totterdown to reassure the community. They are also asking anyone who may have been in the area, particularly at two pubs nearby, if they witnessed anything.
