Can you help us trace this man?

We’re appealing for witnesses and information after a serious sexual assault in Bridgwater early on New Year’s Day.

The assault happened not far from the Malt Shovel pub, Wembdon Road between 4.45am and 5.20am on Tuesday 1 January. A woman was assaulted by a man as she walked home from a night out.

Detectives are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time, especially if they were driving and may have dash cam footage.

We’re also keen to trace a man seen on CCTV in the area at around that time. He is described as being aged in his 40s, with a bald or shaved head. He wore jeans and a large white hooded jacket.

If you recognise him, or have any other information which could help, get in touch, quoting reference 5219000407.
