At around 12.45am on Saturday 23 June, the victim – a 40-year-old woman – was walking along Gattison Lane towards West End Lane, when the man approached her and engaged her in conversation.
The man and the woman were sitting on a wall outside of the Benton House Nursing Home when he reportedly became aggressive and violent towards her before sexually assaulting her. He then left the area heading towards West End Lane before the victim phoned police.
Detective Constable Helaine Hardy, investigating, said: “This was a nasty, violent attack which has understandably left the woman extremely distressed.

“Forensic opportunities have been explored and CCTV footage reviewed but we now need your help to identify the man pictured.
“If you know who he is, or saw or heard anything suspicious in the area at that time, please call 101 quoting incident number 86 of 23 June 2018.
