Another depressing press release from West Midlands Police relating to a nasty incident at Brownhills West last Sunday (Sunday 5th February 2012). This comes on the heels of the indecent exposure incident at the Rising Sun bus top a couple of weeks ago. There’s no suggestion the two incidents are related, but please do take care. We really need to catch these people – Brownhills is generally a very safe place to live, so it’s all the more important that we try and help the Police nail this guy.
WALSALL POLICE are appealing for information from the public after a woman was sexually assaulted in Brownhills.
The incident happened on Sunday evening, 5 February, as the victim was walking near to Tamar Close.
A man approached her from behind and forced her to an area near to garages where she was the victim of a serious sexual assault.
Detective Inspector Scott Griffiths, from the Protection Unit at Bloxwich police station, said: ‘This was a very serious and nasty attack on a lone woman as she walked home.
‘We want to hear from anyone who was in the Tamar Close or Hednesford Road area of Brownhills between the times of 4pm and 7pm on Sunday 5th February, and who saw a man fitting the description of this offender.
‘The victim was also assaulted, and although her injuries were not serious, we are very keen to find the man responsible.
‘Thankfully incidents such as this are rare and officers continue to patrol the area to provide continued reassurance and support to the local community.’
The offender is described as a white man, aged in his 40s, of medium build, unkempt wavy mousy coloured hair, 5ft 8in to 6ft tall, with facial stubble, wearing a green three quarter length fisherman jacket, dark coloured bottoms and black work boots.
