Llandudno sex attack police appeal

North Wales Police are appealing for witnesses after a woman was sexually assaulted after leaving a nightclub.

The 23-year-old woman was grabbed near the Broadway Boulevard in Llandudno at around 02:30 GMT on Sunday and attacked around the back of the building.

Officers said the man, described as 5'8" to 5'10" (1.73m - 1.78m) with mousey-coloured short hair shaved at the sides, went back into the club.

Police said a 21-year-old man had been arrested and released on bail.

Detectives said the woman was left in a distressed state following the incident and several members of staff from the club went to help her.

The suspect was said to be white, of medium build and wearing dark jeans, a maroon or red top and black shoes.

Det Con Lee Harshey-Jones said: "We are appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident, in particular to any person who may have been outside the club between 02:25 GMT and 02:45 GMT on Sunday, and who may have seen the victim and offender at the side or rear of the club."

Anyone with information relating to the incident is asked to contact DC Harshey-Jones at St Asaph CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
