We are appealing for information after a woman was grabbed by a man in Burton-on-Trent.
On Monday 26 June, the victim, a woman in her 30s, was walking along Little Burton Bridge, Horninglow Road, at about 5.45pm.
She was then approached by a man who grabbed her.
The woman got free from the man and then flagged down somebody who was in the area. The man then left the scene shortly after.
The woman was not injured but was left shaken following the incident.
We have been speaking to those in the area at the time and are keen to hear from anyone who may have information which could help with our investigation.
The suspect was roughly in his 40s or 50s and had dark hair with grey in it and stubble on his face.
He was wearing a dark green plain t-shirt, light or cream-coloured three-quarter length cargo shorts and had a push bike.
Anyone who witnessed the incident or those with CCTV or dashcam footage of the area are urged to get in touch.
Call us on 101, quoting incident 374 of 27 June, or message us using Live Chat on our website – www.staffordshire.police.uk
