Officers would like to speak to this man in connection with a sexual assault in Forest Road West on 23 July 2017.

At around 3.30am a 20-year-old woman was walking along the street when she was grabbed by a man and dragged to the floor. The victim screamed and the man ran away. 

We appreciate that the CCTV image isn’t very clear, however the man is believed to have walked past members of the public shortly after the assault and they may have been in the area and heard the female scream.

A 45-year-old man was arrested in connection with the assault but has since been released pending further enquiries. 

If you have any information that could help with our investigation, please call us on 101, quoting incident number 139 of 23 July 2017.
