We’re releasing a CCTV image of a man we need the public’s help to identify as part of an investigation into a serious sexual assault.

A woman was attacked by an unknown man at a property in the north Bristol area in October last year.

The victim described her attacker as a being black, aged in his 30s, of muscular build and with a bald head. He is also said to have had a strong accent.

Investigating officer DC Victoria Kelvin said: “This was a horrifying attack and we’ve been working tirelessly to find the man responsible since the incident was reported to us.

“The victim has been regularly updated on the progress of our investigation and we’ve ensured she has had access to all the support she needs.

“We think the man in the CCTV stills could have information which is vital to our inquiry and we hope someone might be able to tell us who he is.”

If you think you recognise the man, please call 101 and provide the call handler with the reference 5218226649.
