Police renew appeal for witnesses to alleged sexual assault

Police investigating the alleged sexual assault of a 28-year-old woman are appealing for help in catching her attacker.

Today, to mark a month since the assault, police are reminding people of the details of the attack in the hope that more witnesses will come forward.

The assault on the 28-year-old Asian woman is alleged to have happened sometime between 2.30am “ 4.30am on Sunday December 18 2011, in the grounds of Royal Bank Court on College Hill, after the woman had become separated from friends following a night out in the town.

The suspect for the offence, who was seen in La Motte Street with the victim, is described as wearing a dark coloured ˜beanie' style hat, a light brown/camel-colour jacket, dark trousers and dark sh"s.

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.

Police are particularly keen to speak to 2 women, seen on CCTV with another man, who walked past the victim and suspect as they walked down La Motte Street at around 2.30am. On the evening in question it was raining heavily.

Police also would like to identify 2 males who may be able to assist them with their enquiries seen on CCTV in La Motte Street at 2.19am and at 3.45am.

A dedicated team of officers has been working on the case but despite a good response from the public have not been able to identify the attacker.

Detective Chief Inspector Alison Fossey, who is leading the inquiry, said "So far the public have been a great help to the enquiry but we believe more people would have seen the victim that night and we would be keen to speak to them.

"From our viewpoint this is a serious attack on a young woman and we are keen to catch the man responsible.

"We also want to urge other young women 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.

Anyone with information is asked to contact States of Jersey Police on 612612 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
