ANNIVERSARY APPEAL: Detectives appeal for information following a sexual assault in Watford last month

 Published on: 6th November 2020   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Detectives investigating a sexual assault in Watford are issuing a month’s anniversary appeal to several people who may have witnessed what happened to come forward and speak to police.

It happened on the footpath between St Albans Road and Bridle Path, behind the Holiday Inn, just after 5.50am on Tuesday October 6.

The victim, a woman in her 30s, was walking when a man approached her before touching her inappropriately.

She pushed him off and in doing so fell to the ground. The offender ran off in the direction of St Albans Road. The victim was physically uninjured.

The suspect is described as white, of medium build and around 5ft 11in tall. He was wearing a black jacket and a black hoodie.

Detective Constable Lewis Mortimer, from the Watford Local Crime Unit, said: “We have made extensive enquiries into this incident since it was first reported to us. The victim recalls several people being in the vicinity when the assault happened, so today on the anniversary of the offence we are appealing for those people to come forward.

“It happened at a time when many people would have been walking to the railway station. Were you there? Did you see a physical altercation between a man and a woman? If you noticed anything, even if you think it was insignificant, please get in touch.”

You can email DC Mortimer at, report information online at, talk to one of our Force Communication Room operators via web chat at, or call our non-emergency number 101 quoting reference 41/80193/20.
