Do you recognise this man? - Police think he can help with Leamington sexual assault investigation

POLICE have released a photograph of a man they believe can help with their investigations into two separate incidents of sexual assault in Leamington.

A woman was walking along High Street towards Church Street shortly before 10pm on Monday May 30 when she was approached by a man who put his arm around her and tried to kiss her. The victim walked away and the man left the area.

Five days later, on June 4, the woman was outside Kelsey’s Bar on High Street around 2.15am when she was approached by a man.

As they walked towards the junction of Bury Road and Flavel Crescent, the man is reported to have pulled the woman into a hedge, touched her inappropriately over her clothing and attempted to kiss her.

The woman was left shaken by the incident but was uninjured.

Enquiries into both incidents continue and officers are particularly keen to identify the man pictured as it’s believed he might be able to give them information about him.

He is believed to have connections to the Coventry area – specifically Earlsdon and Coventry city centre.

The man, or anyone who knows who he is, should call 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111 quoting incident number 53 of 4 June.
