Alert message sent 12/10/2017 16:46:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

Wiltshire Police has now issued an e-fit after a man was indecently assaulted on Gipsy Lane, Swindon. 

The e-fit follows a release we put out in July about this incident, which took place between 11pm on Saturday 24 June 2017 and 12.30am on Sunday 25 June 2017; the 19-year-old victim was walking along Gipsy Lane, from the Mini plant towards Wickes, when an unknown man approached him and started chatting to him - as they got closer to Wickes the man assaulted the victim.  However, he managed to get away from the suspect who also made off.  

Although shaken, the victim was unhurt. 

The offender is described as being between 20 and 30-years-old, short with a bit of a belly and having dark curly hair and tanned skin.  He was wearing dark jeans and a shirt. 

An e-fit of a man police would like to speak to in relation to this incident is in this link. 

Det Con Suzanne Yeardley said: "I am hoping this e-fit will jog someone's memory or someone will recognise this man and come forward. 
"We believe this is an isolated incident, however I want to reassure everyone that we are continuing to thoroughly investigate this assault." 

If you can help with our enquiries please contact Det Con Suzanne Yeardley at Swindon CID on 101 or anonymously, via Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111.
