Police renew appeal for witnesses on anniversary of attack

Police investigating the sexual assault of a 28-year-old are appealing for the public's help in catching her attacker.
 
December 18th marks a year since the assault and although police have followed hundreds of lines of enquiry during the investigation they need the public for the last piece of the puzzle.
 
The assault on the 28-year-old Asian woman happened in the early hours of Sunday, December 18th, 2011, between 2.30am and 4.30am, in the grounds of Royal Bank Court on College Hill.
 
She had been out on a work Christmas Party but had become separated from friends.
 
The attacker, who was seen in La Motte Street with the victim, is described as wearing a dark coloured ˜beanie' style' hat, with a white motif on it, a light brown/camel-colour jacket, dark trousers and dark sh"s.
 
Detective Superintendent Stewart Gull, Head of Crime Services, said: "This was a predatory attack on a lone and vulnerable female. We believe he was not a party g"r because of his clothing and from our CCTV evidence it looks as if he walked into town with the purpose of finding a vulnerable female.
 
"As you can imagine the victim is still traumatised by this attack and the States of Jersey Police are committed to finding the perpetrator.
 
"This anniversary is another opportunity for us to ask the public to rack their brains over where they were last year, the weekend before Christmas. Were you in town and maybe saw something? Do you recognise the person in the CCTV image? Or the next morning, the 18th, did someone you know behave in a way you thought odd? It could be any of these but it could be the missing puzzle piece to catch this man.
 
The victim, who is described as around 5'2 with long dark hair and wearing a black and white spotted top, black trousers, black boots and carrying a large white handbag, had earlier been out with friends at the La Cala and Mimosa nightclubs and had been seen later walking alone along Bath Street towards Snow Hill.
 
DS Gull said: "We also want to take this opportunity to urge other party g"rs to be vigilant on a night out. These assaults are rare, Jersey is a very safe place, but it d"sn't hurt to be careful.
