A woman in her 20s was sexually assaulted on Tuesday (21).
She was walking along Lemsford Road, St Albans, towards the station at around 7.40am and as she walked past an alleyway, which led to York Road, a man approached her from behind and touched her inappropriately.
He then ran off towards York Road. He’s been described as a white man, possibly in his 20s, 6ft tall with brown collar length curly hair and was wearing a light coloured baseball cap, black t-shirt, black jogging bottoms and light coloured trainers.
Police are appealing for witnesses of the incident.
PC Mark Smith is investigating and said: “This road would have been relatively busy at this time and I would appeal to anyone who was in the area that morning and saw the man described, or saw what happened to please contact police with information.”
