Officers are urging witnesses to come forward after a woman was sexually assaulted by a stranger in Chester.
The victim, who is in her early 20s, was walking along Tower Road on her own at around 8am on Thursday 29 August when the unknown man caught her up and sexually assaulted her from behind.
He then ran off towards Sealand Road.
