aware of a man watching and following her.
She turned into Waterdales, and the man came up behind her and
put his hand up her skirt, touching her bottom.
When she challenged him, he asked her to take down her knickers.
When she threatened to call the police the attacker apologised and
Police have now released this efit of a man wanted in connection
with the assault.
The suspect is said to be around 6ft tall, with black hair, a
medium build and a dark marking on his right cheek.
He was wearing dark jeans, black boots and a grey hooded jacket
with a blue bodywarmer over the top.
Police also want to trace a male driver of a white van
parked on Vale Road at around the time the offence took place.
The victim made eye contact with the driver before she was
assaulted and it is believed he may have seen the offender.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Angela Costin, of Kent
Police, said: ‘We take offences of this nature extremely seriously
and will not tolerate this sort of behaviour."
Anyone who recognises the man, or the white van driver, should
call Kent Police on 101, quoting crime reference XY/3850/13.
