AN APPEAL for information has been launched after a teenage girl was assaulted in Dines Green.
It’s believed the incident happened at some time between 7.25am and 8.05am on Monday (September 14) on a footpath by the side of Laugherne Brook that runs between Solitaire Avenue and Oldbury Road.
The suspect is described as a man aged in his mid-40s to 50s, between 5ft 11” and 6ft tall with short black, greying, hair. He was wearing a black top, faded dark blue jeans with holes in the trouser leg and brown walking boots.
He is thought to have been driving a grey or white vehicle with sliding doors.
Det Insp Ed Slough said: “We are working to establish the full details of what happened yesterday morning and are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time that may have seen this man.
“The incident happened at a fairly busy time with people travelling to work – so please think back as to whether you may have information that could help us.
“The girl is understandably very shaken but thankfully her injuries did not require hospital treatment. We are ensuring she has all the support she needs,” he added.
Call 101, quoting incident number 00109i of September 14 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 with any information.
