Appeal for information following sexual assault on Commercial Road, Portsmouth
Main article content
We are appealing for information following a sexual assault that took place on Commercial Road, Portsmouth.
At 6.30pm on Saturday 30 October, a man approached two girls on Commercial Road, next to the HSBC bank, and attempted to grab one of them by the arm. He then inappropriately touched her over the top of her clothes.
The victim, a 14-year-old girl, is being supported by specialist officers.
We have been following a number of lines of enquiry and are now releasing this image of a man seen in the area at the time to the public.
We appreciate that the image isn’t very clear, but it’s the best we have available at this time. We also have the below description of the man, who we would like to speak to in connection with this incident:
Spoke with an Irish accent
Of larger build
Brown hair, gelled back and messy
Wearing a green top and blue jeans
Do you recognise the description or the image? Perhaps you were in the area at the time and saw what took place? Or maybe you were driving past and have dash cam footage?
