We are appealing for witnesses after a man sexually assaulted a teenager.

Officers were called to Halletts Way, in Portishead, on Tuesday 10 January at around 3.20pm when a college-aged girl was sexually assaulted by touching.

The man is described as being in his late teens to early 20s, approximately 5ft 8ins tall, with grey/blue eyes.

The offender was wearing grey joggers, a black Goose Canada coat with a fluffy hood and a balaclava.

Neighbourhood policing Sgt Marc Stephens said: “We are looking to speak to anyone who may have been in the area that night and saw something, or anyone with CCTV or doorbell footage.

“We believe this is an isolated incident and officers will be carrying out reassurance patrols in the area.”

If you can help, please call 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5223008373, or complete our online appeals form.

You can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers 100 per cent anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via their Anonymous Online Form.

No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will not go to court or have to speak to police when contacting Crimestoppers.
