Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

PO­LICE are ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion af­ter a woman was been sex­u­ally as­saulted out­side a pub in Chal­font St Peter.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened on Satur­day, July 11 at about 1am out­side the Grey­hound pub in the vil­lage High Street.

A 29-year-old woman was with a man out­side the pub who sex­u­ally as­saulted her on a grassed area set back from the road and near to the River Mis­bourne.

The man then fled the scene on foot in the di­rec­tion of Chal­font St Peter.

The of­fender is white, in his mid to late fifties, slim and shorter than 6ft.

In­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cer, Det Con Glen Turner of Force CID based at Ayles­bury po­lice sta­tion, said: “We have a good de­scrip­tion of the of­fender, so I would ask any­one who recog­nises the de­scrip­tion of the man to con­tact po­lice im­me­di­ately ei­ther by vis­it­ing your near­est po­lice sta­tion or call­ing 101.

“Per­haps you saw or heard some­thing sus­pi­cious in the vicin­ity of the Grey­hound pub in the early hours of Satur­day, or you have in­for­ma­tion about the of­fence, if you do then please con­tact us. I would like to re­as­sure lo­cal res­i­dents that we do not be­lieve this was a ran­dom at­tack.

“I un­der­stand that some peo­ple don't feel com­fort­able speak­ing to po­lice, so if you have in­for­ma­tion and don't want to speak di­rectly to po­lice you can con­tact the in­de­pen­dent char­ity Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111.

“Al­ter­na­tively, you can visit the char­ity online at www.crimestop­pers-uk.org. In­for­ma­tion is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.”
