Can you name this man?

Detectives have issued CCTV video footage in a renewed appeal for information about a sexual assault in Chelmsford.

The video clip shows a man believed to be responsible for assaulting an 18-year-old woman as she walked home near The Meadows shopping precinct after a night out with friends.

The incident happened at about 4.30am on Thursday, September 15, 2011 when the woman was on a pavement between the Wilkinson’s store and the river.

The woman, who is from Chelmsford, screamed for help then struggled with the man until he ran away.

Investigating officer, Dc Chris Leslie, said: “The woman was unharmed but badly shaken. She gave us a good description of the man and we have been able to trace his movements on the city centre’s CCTV system.

“Shortly after the assault happened we issued still images taken from the CCTV, but now we hope that moving footage will help us find the man.

“The footage shows a man in a queue of people waiting to go into Chicago’s night spot. He was on his own and remained on his own while in Chicago’s.

“It was Fresher’s Night in the city centre and a large number of students were attending various events. We have checked with the college and university but have not been able to identify this man.

“He is thought to be Asian, aged in his 20s and about 5ft 6in tall. At the time his hair was shaved at the back and sides and long on top. He might have had a slight moustache. He was wearing a blue check shirt, beige chinos and black trainers with white soles and laces.

“If anyone knows this man or might have any information about his whereabouts, please call us immediately.”

Anyone with information should contact DC Leslie at Chelmsford CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
