Image Appeal Sexual Assault, Thornes Park, Wakefield

Friday, 23 September 2022 

Police have released an image of a man they would like to identify and speak to in connection with a sexual assault that took place in Thornes Park in August.

On Friday 5 August, a woman in her 50’s was walking her dog in the park between 11am and 1pm when she was approached by a male who grabbed her and made sexual remarks towards her.

This is the only picture we have of this male; whilst it may not show his face, we hope that someone might be able to recognise his clothing and physique.
