- Credit: Archant
These CCTV images have been released after a woman was sexually assaulted in St Albans.
The incident happened on April 11 at about midnight, when a woman in her 20s was walking from St Albans City Station and realised a man had followed her onto Victoria Street.
He started to walk beside the victim, trying to talk to her, before grabbing her arm and trying to forcefully kiss her.
PC Laura Richardson said: “The victim repeatedly told the male ‘no’ and pushed him away, but was understandably very shaken up by this incident.
“We are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen what happened. I believe there may be a number of witnesses as other people were leaving the station at the same time that night.”
