Police have issued an EvoFit image of a man they wish to speak to in connection with a sexual assault in Plymouth.

It is alleged that a man approached a 12-year-old girl just off Crownhill Road, close to the path and footbridge that leads to Whitley Way, at around 5.10pm on Sunday 30 October.

As part of police inquiries, investigating officers have released an EvoFit image of an individual they would like to trace.

Detective Constable Nat Elliott-Smith from the Plymouth Public Protection Unit said: “We are keen to hear from anyone who can help us identifying this person.

“The suspect made inappropriate and sexually aggressive comments to the girl and then attempted to grab her by the shoulder.

“She managed to run away and whilst shaken up, she is thankfully unharmed.

“The victim immediately called her parents who then called the police. Units were sent to the area, but our initial searches were unsuccessful. Clearly this is an upsetting and concerning incident and we are appealing for witnesses to help officers locate the man responsible.”

“If you witnessed the incident or were in the area between 4.45pm and 5.30pm on Sunday 30 October or have any information that could assist with the investigation, the please contact us.

“Similarly, if you are a road user and have dashcam or helmet cam footage that can help, or CCTV or doorbell camera’s that have captured anything of interest, please contact the investigative team immediately.”
