CCTV released in Liverpool city centre sex attack

Police have released CCTV images of a man they would like to speak to following an alleged sexual assault in Liverpool city centre.

The incident took place between 5.40pm and 6pm on November 24 last year at the Sainsbury’s cash point on Old Hall Street.

A 19 year-old woman was queuing at the cashpoint when a man approached from behind and whispered in her ear before sexually assaulting her.

The woman was not injured but was left distressed by her ordeal, after which it is believed the man went into the aforementioned Sainsbury’s store.

He is described as about 5ft 9in tall, of medium build, aged between 30 and 40 with short dark hair and stubble. He was wearing a black tracksuit and black trainers.

Anyone who recognises the man, the man himself, or anyone with any information is asked to call 0151 777 4065 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
