Police have released an e-fit image of a man they want to speak to about a serious sex assault in Bradford.

The 33-year-old female victim was threatened with a knife before the attack on City Road at about 04:00 BST on 26 September.

Her attacker had been riding a bicycle and pulled the knife from a rucksack.

He is described as white, about 25 years old, 5ft 7in tall, and of broad build. He was wearing a striped woolly hat and the rucksack across his body.

Det Ch Insp Lisa Griffin said: "This was an extremely upsetting and traumatic experience for the victim who has been extremely brave in helping us piece together the circumstances of this incident.

"Specialist officers have been working with the victim to develop an e-fit of her attacker.

"We would like to speak to this man immediately or hear from anyone who knows his identity."
