New plea after sex attack on girl in Llandrindod Wells

Police have renewed their appeal for information after a serious sexual assault on a 16-year-old girl in Powys.

The girl was attacked as she walked from The Venue Nightclub, Spa Road, Llandrindod Wells, to a friend's house in the early hours of New Year's Day.

The teenager is now receiving specialist care and support.

Officers said they want to trace a white male, 5ft 9in-5ft 10in tall, in his 20s, with a square jaw line and an English accent.

Det Chief Insp Shane Williams said the victim, who was wearing a black dress, left the nightclub walking past the town's hospital on Temple Street.

She walked over the level crossing before making her way towards Hillcrest Avenue - close to the scene of the assault.

"We are keen to speak to anybody who was out in the town during the evening who may have seen the victim or the male fitting the suspect profile," he said

Dyfed-Powys Police are trying to trace the victim's mobile phone, a Samsung model on T-Mobile, which they said may be in the area near Crabtree Green or Hillcrest Drive.

Anyone with information should contact Dyfed-Powys Police on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
