Sex attack on woman in Epsom probed by police

  • Published

A woman was sexually assaulted while walking alone in Epsom.

The woman was attacked by a man in West Hill between 0130 and 0230 GMT on Friday.

Earlier, at 0930 GMT, two teenage girls called police after being followed by a man in Chantilly Way. Police believe the two incidents may be linked.

The suspect is described as a white man aged in his 50s or 60s, who spoke with a London accent. He was wearing a dark tracksuit with a yellow logo.

Det Con Tracy Maclean, of Surrey Police, urged people not to walk home alone following a night out.

She said: "Think of alternatives to walking home, would ordering a licensed taxi be a better option?

"Or could someone you know and has not been drinking alcohol give you a lift or pick you up?"
