Police call for witnesses of sexual assault near Ruston Way McDonald’s

Unsuspecting: As she was composing herself after slipping, a woman was sexually assaulted by a stranger offering help.

Lincolnshire Police are appealing for information after a woman was sexually assaulted in the city last month. The incident occurred on the night of July 20, along Ruston Way (pictured), near the McDonald’s fast-food restaurant.

A 22-year-old local woman was walking to a friend’s house along Ruston Way. As she crossed the road at the McDonald’s restaurant, she slipped over, so she sat at the side of the road to compose herself.

The offender saw the victim slipping, and he spoke to her and offered assistance, according to the police report. He then sexually assaulted her. The woman managed to push him off, and he left the scene.

The man is described as white, and between 19 and 23-years-old. He’s of medium build, and around 5ft 10in tall. His hair was short dark blonde, spiked on top, and he has blue eyes, and prominent cheek bones.

PC Caroline Gordon of Lincolnshire Police is investigating this case, and is asking for people who may have witnessed the attack, or who may have any information on the offender, to get in touch as soon as possible on 0300 111 0300.
