A TEENAGE woman was propositioned and sexually assaulted by a car driver in an “unacceptable” attack.
The woman, who is in her late teens, was walking up Rainbow Hill and had turned into Lansdowne Crescent at about 6.30am on Saturday, October 5 when she noticed a black car driving slowly alongside her.
The driver asked her where she was going and offered her a lift home, which she refused, before the man got out of the car and approached her on Lansdowne Walk.
He started asking her personal questions then asked for a kiss. She tried to ignore him, but he attempted to kiss her and put his hand under her dress.
She pushed him away and hurried off while he got back into his vehicle and drove off.
The driver is described as being Asian, in his late 20s or early 30s, about 5ft 7ins tall, of medium build and he had short, black hair. He was wearing a white shirt and black trousers and had a local accent.
PC Naz Waliat of Worcester Police Station said: “This was a distressing incident for the young woman and it is concerning to us – it is unacceptable that anyone is approached, propositioned and sexually assaulted in the street.
“If anyone in the Rainbow Hill area witnessed any part of this incident, I would urge them to come forward. I would also like to speak to anyone who may recognise the description of the driver.”
Anyone with information can call PC Waliat, quoting incident 177s05/10/13, on the non-emergency number 101.
