E-fit released of man who grabbed student in Trowbridge
Wiltshire Police are stepping up their search to track down a man who grabbed the arm of a teenage girl as she walked along Holbrook Lane on Monday, February 25.
They have released an e-fit of the man who is described as being around 5ft 10in to 6ft tall around, medium build with dark hair and a foreign accent.
The 17-year-old Wiltshire College student was walking to Holbrook Primary School to do her work experience placement when the incident happened.
The man grabbed her right arm, swung her round, and said: "Have you got a boyfriend?"
She replied ‘yes’ and managed to break free, running to the school while the man ran off along an alley leading to Burnett Road.
Sergeant Gill Hughes, of Trowbridge Response, said: "The young woman was left very shaken and upset by her experience and we are extremely keen to find this man.
"He was wearing a dark brown knitted, long sleeved jumper with a round neck and dark coloured trousers.
"If you saw a man acting suspiciously in Holbrook Lane, Dursley Road or Burnett Road on that day in February, or if you think you recognise the man in the e-fit we would like to hear from you."
Anyone with information can call Wiltshire Police on 101 asking for Sergeant Gill Hughes or PC Tania Hedley.
