A female jogger was the victim of a sexual attack while out running near Southampton Common.

Southampton common 3

The woman, who is in her early 20s, was approached by the attacker while she was running along a path next to Cemetery Road at 8:30am yesterday morning. The man indecently assaulted the woman before she was able to escape and seek help from a passer-by.

Detectives are on the hunt for the attacker, and the police have launched an appeal for witnesses of anyone who was in the area at the time, especially for the older man who was walking his three dogs who offered to walk the victim home after the attack.

The attacker has been described as a white man in his mid 30s, about 5 ft 10 ins tall and of average build. He had short brown hair and stubble and was wearing a baggy navy blue jumper with a white sports logo in the middle and navy blue trousers at the time of the incident.
