The Chronicle - - News -

A 17-YEAR-OLD was sex­u­ally as­saulted while cy­cling in North Shields, po­lice say.

Northum­bria Po­lice is ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion fol­low­ing the al­leged at­tack be­tween Percy Main and Sil­ver­link at around 2pm on Satur­day, April 14.

The force says a 17-year-old girl was cy­cling along the Wagon Way when a man grabbed her bike’s han­dle­bars and sex­u­ally as­saulted her.

The teenage girl was able to break free and cy­cle away. The man walked off to­wards Sil­ver­link.

The man is de­scribed as slim, 6ft, be­tween 30 and forty and bald with fa­cial hair. Of­fi­cers would like to speak to a jog­ger who ran past around the time the at­tack hap­pened, while a woman and four chil­dren were also in the area.
