Police in Rotherham have released a CCTV image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with an alleged sexual assault.
Launching an appeal today (Monday, October 23, 2023), a South Yorkshire Police spokesperson said the woman was allegedly sexually assaulted at a property in Dinnington at around 1.30am on Wednesday, September 13, 2023.
They added: "After leaving the property, the man is said to have returned approximately 90 minutes later and banged on the door asking to be let in.
"It is understood the man then fled after the woman called the police. Enquiries are ongoing but officers are keen to identify the man in the image as they believe he may be able to assist with their investigation.
"The man is described as an Asian male in his early 20s and of a skinny build. It is thought he is around 5ft 5ins tall with short black hair and a black beard.
"Do you recognise him?"
