High Wycombe sex assault on teenage girl

A 16-year-old girl was pushed to the ground and sexually assaulted as she walked through a Buckinghamshire town.

The teenager was in Desborough Road, High Wycombe, when she was approached by a man in the early hours of Sunday.

He pulled her between two parked vehicles, pushed her to the ground and attacked her.

She managed to flag down a passing motorist, who called the police. The attacker, who ran off towards Green Street, is in his early 20s.

He is described as about 5ft 6in (1.67m), of medium build, with light brown hair and a tanned complexion.

He had "squinty" brown eyes and small facial features.

He spoke with a local accent and was wearing a black tracksuit and white high-top Nike trainers with blue laces.

Det Con Dave Cannon of Thames Valley Police said: "The girl was understandably left very distressed by the assault.

"I am keen to speak to anyone with information about the incident who has not already come forward."
