Colchester: Appeal after teenage girls are assaulted
Main article content
We are investigating after two teenage girls were assaulted by a man in Colchester.
The two victims were walking in Magdalen Street at about 6pm on Monday 25 October when a man who had been laying on the ground got up and grabbed one of the girls by the shoulder the other girl by the wrist.
Thankfully, both girls managed to pull away and run away.
The man is described as white, about six feet tall and was wearing a rainbow t-shirt, black tracksuit bottoms and black trainers.
The man then left the area towards Hythe Hill.
PC Nathan O’Sullivan, who is investigating the incident, said:
“Thankfully, neither victim was injured during this incident but both girls were understandably shaken up as a result of it. “I would like to locate the man described and I would appeal to anyone who recognises the description to come forward and speak to us. We believe the man involved may have been intoxicated at the time.”
Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information on the man should submit a report online or use the 'Live Chat' button to speak to an online operator between 7am-11pm.
