CCTV released in renewed appeal following sexual assaults in Ashford
A CCTV image has been released as officers renew their appeal to find the person responsible for carrying out sexual assaults and acts of public indecency in Ashford.
At around 2pm on Tuesday, 23 April 2019 a man is reported to have exposed himself to a woman in Riverbank Way, Ashford. A similar incident is reported to have taken place in Fairview Drive shortly afterwards, and another in East Stour Way, Willesborough at around 6pm.
On Sunday 14 April 2019 at around 7pm a woman was walking her dog in Cuckoo Lane when she was approached by a man who is reported to have exposed himself.
Officers are not ruling out the possibility these incidents may be linked to reports of sexual assaults in Ashford too. On Monday 4 March 2019 at around 2pm a woman was approached by a man as she was walking her dog through an alleyway near Hawks Way. He spoke to the victim briefly about her dog before touching the top of her leg.
A similar thing took place at around 3pm in Knoll Lane where another woman was touched on the leg when walking along a footpath.
A 21-year-old man was arrested in connection with the reports of sexual assault on Monday 25 March 2019. However he has been released without charge.
Officers are now issuing the image of a man who may be able to assist with their ongoing investigation.
Anyone who recognises the man is asked to call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting reference 46/79588/19. Alternatively, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers in Kent, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
