Serious sexual assault in Wistaston: e-fit appeal

Detectives investigating reports of a serious sexual assault in Wistaston have issued an e-fit as they continue to appeal for information.

At sometime between 2.40pm to 3pm on Monday 16th January, a serious sexual assault is reported to have taken place on Oak Tree Walk.

The victim, a 15-year-old girl, is continuing to be supported by specialist officers.

The suspect is a man, described as being aged in his late 20s, of slim build, with brown/red hair, a scar under his eye and stretcher piercings in both ears.

At the time of the incident, he was wearing frameless glasses, dark blue jeans, a burgundy coloured jumper and a mustard Trespass jacket.

Enquiries into the circumstances surrounding the incident are ongoing and as part of these enquiries, officers are now issuing an e-fit of a man.

Superintendent Claire Jesson said: “We have had several people come forward with information which has been invaluable to our investigation however we are still keen to identify the suspect.

“We have now issued an e-fit of the suspect in a bid to jog people’s memories to see whether they may have seen the man in and around the area at the time of the incident.

“I would like to reassure the community that we will continue to have officers patrolling the local area, especially at key times and would urge anyone with concerns or information to please approach them and they will do all they can to assist.

“Enquiries into the incident are still ongoing and we are continuing to appeal to anyone who may have been in the area around the time of the incident and may have seen something that didn’t look quite right, to come forward.

“I would ask that residents please check any doorbell or CCTV footage again and if anything, no matter how small, stands out, please get in touch with officers and we will do the rest.

“The same goes to anyone who may have information that could assist us with our enquiries.”
