DE­TEC­TIVES in­ves­ti­gat­ing the sex­ual as­sault of a woman at Mul­laloo Beach on De­cem­ber 24 have made a fresh call for wit­nesses to come for­ward.

About 5am, a woman in her 40s was walk­ing along the beach track next to Ocean­side Prom­e­nade when a naked man grabbed her from be­hind, dragged her to the ground and sex­u­ally as­saulted her.

The in­ci­dent oc­curred about 300m north of the Mul­laloo Beach (north) carpark. The man fled on foot and was last seen run­ning south.

He was de­scribed as 18 to 25 years old with brown skin, an ath­letic build, clean shaven and short brown hair.

Sev­eral peo­ple were in the area around the time of the as­sault and po­lice would like to speak to them, par­tic­u­larly a man and woman walk­ing south on the beach track of the Mul­laloo carpark about 4.45am.

The woman was wear­ing a red jumper and black pants with a Nike logo on the side. The man was wear­ing a black long-sleeved top and black shorts.

De­tec­tives are urg­ing the man and woman and any­one else who was in the area around the time to call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000.
