Wyboston attack efit
Bedfordshire Police are looking for this man in connection to a sexual assault in Wyboston in June.

An e-fit of a man thought to be behind a sexual attack in Wyboston last month has been issued, as Police renew their appeal for witnesses and information in a bid to catch the attacker.

On 28 June, at around 8:30am a woman walking along a footpath between The Lane and Chawston Lane was approached by a man who then assaulted her.

The man is described as dark skinned with dark hair and facial stubble, and of an unkempt, dishevelled appearance.

He had earrings in both ears, and was wearing a large, diamond-shaped gold ring.

Detective Inspector Craig Laws, investigating, said: “We have released this e-fit of a man we would like to speak to as part of our investigation, and hope new information will lead to the identification of this suspect.

“We continue to follow up on lines of enquiry and are taking this incident very seriously, whilst supporting the victim, and I would appeal to anyone who believes they recognise this man to get in touch.”

If you know this man, or have information about this incident, you can contact Bedfordshire Police onl 101, or report it via their online reporting site, quoting Op Odenwald.

You can also call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
