Police have released an E-fit image of man who sexually assaulted a woman in Milton Keynes.

The E-fit is being released as part of a re-appeal for witnesses to the incident which took place at a time between 6.10pm and 6.30pm on Tuesday 12 February this year.

The victim, a woman in her twenties, was running along a footpath along H4 Dansteed Way, between the turnings for Crownhill Crematorium and Hendrix Drive.

The offender then cycled past her and made eye contact with her. Moments later the victim was slapped on the bottom with a considerable amount of force. She was then pushed but stayed on her feet.
