West Midlands Police are seeking a man – believed to have a Scottish accent – who subjected a 63 year old woman to a serious sexual assault in the Wychall area of Kings Norton last month.
The attack happened on a footpath between Popes Lane and Wychall Road at around 5pm on Friday 18th November.
The woman was walking near Wychall Reservoir in Kings Norton Nature Reserve when a well dressed man with a Scottish accent approached her and asked for a light for a cigarette.
She obliged and continued but, moments later, on the pathway between Popes Lane and Wychall Road, she was attacked. The man grabbed her from behind, pulled her to the floor and assaulted her.
The man is described as:
- Aged in 30s-40s
- Scottish accent
- Smartly dressed – blue trousers & black pointed shoes
- Smelled strongly of aftershave
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Fay Mason, said: “This is a shocking attack on a woman by a stranger…we need to identify her attacker as soon as possible.
“The lady has provided some strong appeal points, namely that he spoke with what she’s convinced was a Scottish accent and that he was well dressed.”
And DC Mason appealed to anyone with any information to get in touch. She said: “If anyone believes they know who the offender is − or was near Wychall reservoir at around 5pm on Friday 18 November − I would urge them to contact me.”
Anyone with any information is urged to contact DC Mason by calling 101 or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
