Detectives investigating a serious sexual assault on a woman in Leeds have released new CCTV images of a man they want to identify.

The 30-year-old victim was attacked in the Crown Street car park at the rear of the Corn Exchange in Leeds city centre some time between 2.30am and 3.15am on Saturday, September 6.

She had met the suspect in nearby Milo bar, in Call Lane, at about 1am and left with him at about 2.30am to go to another bar.

It is believed the man left the car park when passers-by disturbed him during the incident.

He was described as white, aged about 25, with messy spikey hair and broad shoulders. He was said to be good looking and spoke with a Leeds accent. He was wearing a shirt and jeans and smelled of Hugo Boss aftershave.

A 20-year-old man was arrested following an earlier appeal for information but was later released without charge.

Detective Inspector Marc Bowes, of Leeds District CID, said: “As part of our ongoing enquiries into this incident we have identified further images of the suspect. I would like to hear from anyone who recognises the man shown in the images or who has any information that could assist the investigation.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Leeds District CID at Elland Road via 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
