Man hunt following assault of woman in Butetown

Police are searching for a man in Cardiff after a 43 year-old woman was sexually assaulted in the Butetown area of the city.

An image of the man they are searching for in connection with the assault, which happened at around 6.20am on April 22, has been released.

The woman was walking along Bute Street when she was sexually and physically assaulted in an area between Bute Street and Lloyd George Ave.

Detective Inspector Noel Harris said: “Extensive enquiries have been on-going since this incident was reported to us. However, we are now appealing for help from the public.

“This was a very frightening experience for the woman who, as you would expect, has been left extremely distressed. Support has been provided to her and this is on-going.”

The suspect is described as having tanned skin, of stocky build, with blue eyes and dark curly hair. He was wearing a ‘puffa’ type jacket which had fur trim around the detachable hood. He is aged in his late 20s or 30s and is described as having a Turkish or Greek accent.

It is believed he may have been in the St Mary Street area prior to the assault and may have spoken to a number of people.

Anyone with information on this incident, the man in the CCTV, or the individual himself, is asked to contact Fairwater CID on 029 20 527248 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
