Man arrested over alleged sexual assault


A 36-year-old man has been arrested and remains on bail after a woman told Police she was approached by a man while sitting outside a supermarket and forced to go to a property where he sexually assaulted her.

The alleged sexual attack involving the woman, who Police said was in her 30s, reportedly happened on Tuesday 21 May around 09:30 between the Co-op Grand Marché and Stopford Road.

Police explained in an appeal for more information: "A woman in her 30s reported that a man approached her on La Rue Le Masurier whilst she was sitting outside La Grande Marche and then forced her to go to an address nearby where he sexually assaulted her.

"The woman and man were seen in the area of Millennium Park beforehand, they walked together from Bath Street to the area of Grand Marché. The woman was wearing a short jacket and leggings, the man was wearing a tracksuit."

Police are now reaching out to the public for help and ask anyone that saw the disturbance outside the Grand Marché or know those involved to contact them on 612612 or make an anonymous report using the Crimestoppers' website.
