Witnesses sought after 14-year-old girl is sexually assaulted in Wisbech

POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a 14-year-old girl was sexually assaulted in Wisbech.

The teenager was walking along a footpath beside the ambulance station in St Augustines Road when she was approached by a man at about 2.40pm on Saturday.

The man, who is thought to have been drunk, spoke in a foreign language, was white, and aged bout 30 to 35. He was wearing a black baseball cap and a black Adidas jumper with white stripes along the sides.

The girl, who was shaken and upset but not injured, fled the scene after the assault and the police were called.

Police are appealing for anyone who was in the area to come forward, particularly a woman who was walking her dark-coloured dog at the time.

PC Colin Johnson said: “We know that there were several people in the area at the time and I am keen to speak to anyone who was in Wisbech Town Park, visiting the hospital or any businesses or houses near to the ambulance station, between 2.25pm and 3pm, to get in touch.

“They may have been potential witnesses without realising it. I would particularly like to hear from the woman, described as an “older lady”, who walked from the park and along St Augustines Road at about the time the assault happened.
