Police launch Waterlooville Sex attack probe

Hampshire Constabulary are appealing for witnesses to a sexual assault which took place in Waterlooville.

At around 2.20pm on Monday 6 August, a teenage girl was walking a dog through Queens Inclosure Woods when she was approached by a man she did not know who began talking to her.

The man persistently walked with the girl and asked for her telephone number before hugging her and inappropriately touching her over her clothes. He then ran off.

He was described as:

Asian
Aged around 18
Slim
5ft 6ins tall
Big nose (long not wide)
No facial hair
The man was described as wearing dark blue jeans and a burgundy top.

PC Christopher Young said: “We are appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident or saw this man in the area at this time.

“We know that there were other dog walkers in the woods around this time. When other dog walkers appeared in the vicinity this prompted the man to run off.

“Were you walking your dog in the area at this time? Have you seen a man matching this description? Please let us know.

“In addition, we would advise anyone walking in this area to be extra vigilant.”

If you have any information, please contact us on 101, quoting 44180298470, or call the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
