Detectives investigating a serious sexual assault on a young woman on Sheerness beach have today released more details about the alleged attacker.
Police were called at just after 3am on Sunday to reports of an attack against a woman in her 20s near Bridge Road.
The victim had spent the evening at the nearby Tantra nightclub shortly before she was allegedly attacked by a man between 2am and 3am.
Her attacker is described as white, of medium to stocky build with broad shoulders, in his mid-20s, about 5ft 9ins with an oval-shaped face and dark spikey hair with a fringe and noticeable sideburns.
He was wearing dark skinny jeans, a dark long-sleeved cardigan with a light-coloured top underneath and white trainers with laces.
Following the assault, the offender fled along the seawall in the direction of Minster.
Officers from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate are conducting house-to-house inquiries and will be carrying out checks this weekend as part of their investigation.
