THE hunt for a man who bru­tally as­saulted a woman jog­ging along the Mid­dle Park fore­shore last year has been ramped up.

Sex Crime De­tec­tives are nar­row­ing in on the of­fender, who grabbed the then 31-yearold from be­hind as she ran along Beaconsfield Pde be­tween 11pm and 11.30pm on Fe­bru­ary 5, 2017.

The man forced the woman face first into the sand and sex­u­ally as­saulted her dur­ing the at­tack.

The woman was saved by two passers-by, a man and woman.

The of­fender, be­lieved to be aged 20-30-years-old, fled the beach and has not been seen since. The man (above) was cau­casian, about 178cm tall with a medium build, light­coloured eyes and light­coloured hair.

He was wear­ing a hooded jumper and shorts and was car­ry­ing a large, black bag.

De­tec­tives would also like to speak to the passers-by.
