Police have released footage of a man they want to question after a woman was sexually assaulted at knifepoint.

The woman, in her late 20s, was leaving the Shell garage on Poynters Road, Dunstable, Bedfordshire, last Thursday when the suspect got into her 4x4.

Police said she was then forced to drive to nearby Tomlinson Avenue where she was attacked.

Officers are keen for anyone who has any information about the incident to contact them.

Police said a man got into the victim's unlocked car at 18:55 GMT as she was driving off the forecourt.

The offender is described as white, about 5ft 10in (1.78m) tall and of slim to medium build.

He was wearing dark trousers, which possibly had a logo on them or fluorescent markings. He also wore a dark hooded jacket with the hood up.

Police said it was a "terrifying experience" for the victim and are keen to talk to anyone who may have seen the attack, including a jogger who was spotted running past the garage.
