E-fit released after attempted rape
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.
Investigating officer Detective Inspector Jon Groenen, of Newbury Force CID, said: “I would like to speak to anyone who recognises the man shown in the image, or anyone who has any information which could help us to identify him.
“If you have any information which you think could help our investigation, please call the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number on 101.”
