A computer generated image has been produced by police who are investigating an alleged serious sexual assault on a woman in Melton.

The incident is reported to have happened during the early hours of Sunday 14 May in Scalford Road, Melton.

We want to hear from you if you think you know who it could be.

She was walking past Catherine Dalley House between 1am and 2am when she was approached by two men who sexually assaulted her.

The man in the image may have information about the assault and police want to trace him.

Detective Constable Felicity James said: “We appreciate some time has passed since this offence is said to have taken place. However I would like to reassure people that we have been carrying out enquiries throughout this period and have only just completed the image with the woman concerned.

“Our enquiries have included a CCTV trawl and extensive house to house enquires. We have remained in regular contact with the victim throughout the investigation and it is only very recently she has felt able to provide us with a full statement and the image. If you know who this could be please come forward.

“We would ask people to remain vigilant when out in the early hours of the morning, and report any suspicious behaviour to the police. We believe this to be an isolated incident and the enquiry is continuing into the exact circumstances.”

Call 101 quoting crime number 17*202650.
