Jersey Police are renewing their appeal for witnesses to a sexual assault in St Helier.

A month ago a 28-year-old woman was treated in hospital after she was attacked following a night out in town.

The States of Jersey police said it happened in the early hours of Sunday 17 December in Royal Bank Court on College Hill.

Despite help from the public, Det Chief Insp Alison Fossey said they had not been able to identify the attacker.

She said the police particularly want to speak to a man and two women who walked past the victim and suspect in La Motte Street at about 02:30 GMT in heavy rain.

She said: "So far the public have been a great help to the enquiry but we believe more people would have seen the victim that night and we would be keen to speak to them.

"From our viewpoint this is a serious attack on a young woman and we are keen to catch the man responsible.

"We also want to urge other young women to be vigilant on a night out.

"These assaults are rare, Jersey is a very safe place, but it doesn't hurt to be careful."
