DO you recognise this man?

Police have issued this CCTV image of a man wanted in connection with a sexual assault in Leigh.

The 27-year-old victim was walking down Ledbury Street by an alleyway when she was approached by the offender.

He started sexually assaulting her before she managed to push him away and he ran off.

The woman was not hurt but left shocked by her ordeal.

It happened at about 12.30am on Sunday, January 20.

The attacker is described as Asian, around 28 years old, 5ft 4in tall, slim build and had a moustache.

Det Sgt Graham Clare, from Wigan CID, said: “This was a disturbing sex attack on a woman walking home at night.

“Thankfully the victim had the presence of mind to push him away and he ran off before the attack could get even more serious.

“I now want to hear from anyone who either saw or heard anything that night or who recognises the man in the image."

Anyone with information or who thinks they know the identity of the man in the picture should contact Wigan CID on 0161 856 5307.
