AN e-fit has been re­leased of a man po­lice wish to ques­tion fol­low­ing the at­tempted rape of a woman walk­ing her dog in Win­nersh last week.

The woman was in a park be­hind Dun­stans Drive at about 5.55pm last Thurs­day when she was ap­proached and grabbed from be­hind by a man.

He pulled the 36-year-old to the ground and at­tempted to re­move her clothes. How­ever, the vic­tim’s dog be­came ag­gres­sive and the of­fender ran from the scene.

The woman was not in­jured in the in­ci­dent. The of­fender is de­scribed as hav­ing tanned skin, dark hair and is clean shaven. He may be aged in his thir­ties and is about 5ft 7ins tall.

He was wear­ing a black hooded top and black or navy jog­ging bot­toms.

Of­fi­cers are con­tin­u­ing to in­ves­ti­gate whether the in­ci­dent is linked to a sex­ual as­sault which oc­curred in Brack­nell at about 1am on Fri­day, Novem­ber 3. In this in­ci­dent a 25-year-old woman was grabbed by a man who at­tempted to re­move her cloth­ing be­fore she man­aged to get away from him.
