Surrey Police launch fresh appeal for Epsom Derby sex assault information
Police have made a fresh appeal for information after a 15-year-old girl was sexually assaulted at the Epsom Derby last month.
The incident took place at 4pm on Saturday, June 2, when the victim was attacked in a nearby field by a boy she had met earlier in the day at the music and fairground area of the racecourse.
An initial appeal in June led to police eliminating one man who matched the description of the attacker from their investigation, but they are still hunting the perpetrator.
The boy is described as white, 16 to 17-years-old, skinny but muscular, with a prominent wide jaw, short ginger/blonde hair and a pale, spotty complexion. He was wearing a long- sleeved, dark blue top and baggy blue jeans.
Police would also like to speak with a boy of a similar age who was with him.
He is described as of larger build, with short, flattened brown hair and tanned skin. He was wearing a short sleeved white top and blue baggy jeans.
Detective Constable James Cumming, said: "I ask anyone who has information on this serious sexual assault and has not yet contacted us for whatever reason to come forward as a matter of urgency as we need to find the offender and bring him to justice.
"It is now a month since the assault took place, people may have viewed photographs which have jogged their memory of the day’s events and can now remember seeing something suspicious or have spoken with others about the day and have realised they may have information which could assist officers.
"Following the initial release of the e-fit in June, a member of the public provided us with a name of someone they believed matched the description of the offender.
"Officers spoke to the man but we were able to eliminate him from the investigation which is why I would urge anyone with suspicions around someone they know to contact us."
Anyone with has information should call the police on 101 quoting reference EP/12/2172 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
