A WOMAN was sexually assaulted while exercising in Patterson Lakes last month.
The victim, a 21-year-old, was in Kurrawa Linear Reserve and saw a man enter from Colac Court around 9.20am on 30 July.
The man began masturbating on a bench, and then approached the victim from behind. He grabbed her and tried to assault her.
The victim struggled and the man fled on foot toward Gladesville Boulevard.
CCTV images of a man police wish to speak to have been released. Police describe him as “perceived to be Caucasian in appearance, aged 20 to 25-years-old, about 170cm tall and spoke with a raspy voice. The man was wearing a black hooded jacket and black tracksuit pants.”
Anyone who can identify the man or with any information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
