Do you recognise this man?

We want to speak to him in connection with an investigation into a sexual assault in Blackpool.

At 8.48am on May 23, the victim – a 15-year-old girl – was outside Leyton Institute on Westcliffe Drive waiting for a bus.

She felt a man grab her bottom before he walked off towards Tesco.

He is described as white, 5ft 7ins tall, and in his 40s. He was wearing a grey cotton jacket and black adidas tracksuit bottoms with white stripes down the side.

No arrest has been made at this stage. Reassurance patrols have been increased in the area as a precaution.

We have made numerous enquiries to identify the suspect. As part of our ongoing investigation we are now asking for the public’s help to identify the man in the CCTV still as we believe he has information which could assist our investigation.

We would ask anybody with information on his whereabouts or the man himself to contact the police as soon as possible.

Email [email protected] or call 101, quoting log 0323 of May 23, 2022.
