Sexual Crimes Squad detectives are appealing for public assistance after a woman was attacked and sexually assaulted in Seaford on Saturday (1st April).
Investigators have been told the 19-year-old woman was walking home from the train station along Railway Parade near Seaford North Reserve at about 3.10am.
It is believed she stopped briefly near bushes at a church car park when she was attacked from behind by an unknown man who sexually assaulted her.
The offender then ran from the scene in an unknown direction and the victim walked home where she raised the alarm.
The offender is described as having a tanned complexion with brown hair, thin build and spoke with an Australian accent.
He was wearing jeans with a belt and a dark coloured t-shirt and had a distinctive mole on the left side of his cheek or chin and has small teeth.
The victim’s black jeans and Nike runner were left at the scene and investigators are keen to speak to anyone that lives nearby that may have seen any items of clothing.
Detectives have released a digital composite image of a man who may be able to assist with their enquiries.
