[Reference: C5480 sexually assaulted in Clowne CR54026-11]
Police are appealing to the public for help to identify a man they suspect may have sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl in Clowne.
Just after 12.20am on Sunday October 16, patrolling police officers were flagged down by the girl on Creswell Road, Clowne. She told them that she had been sexually assaulted on Hickinwood Lane. At about 11.30pm on Saturday October 15 she had been walking along Station Road to meet friends when she was approached by a man driving a light coloured 4 x 4 vehicle. He asked her directions to Creswell and she offered to show him as she was heading in that direction.
She got into the vehicle which continued along Station Road and onto Hickinwood Lane where the driver pulled into an isolated spot and sexually assaulted the girl. The man has been described as white, 5’9 tall, skinny build, with a bristly face and brown hair. He was wearing grey tracksuit bottoms and a black top.
Officers are seeking assistance from anyone who may have been in the area at that time, who has information or who recognises the man in the Evo-Fit. Police can be contacted on the new non emergency number 101 or alternatively people can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
