Police release e-fit of man wanted over sexual assault in Newtown

DYFED-Powys Police has released an e-fit of a man they want to speak to in connection with a sexual assault in Newtown on Tuesday, 23 March.

Seven days ago, a woman was on the canal between the Pump House and Llanllwchaiarn Church, when she was approached by a man who assaulted her at around 4.50pm.

DI Andy Evans, who is now leading the investigation, said his team was grateful for the all calls and intelligence so far.

“We have had a good response to the press appeal,” he said.

“But we’re hopeful that this e-fit, as well as a more precise location, will help jog the memories for people in the area at the time.”

The male, who had walked from the Llanllwchaiarn direction before assaulting his victim, made off towards Newtown.

He is described as being white, of medium build, in his late 20s or early 30s, and was about 5ft 7ins. He was wearing a black zip-up hoodie, black trousers and black trainers with white soles. He spoke with an English accent and is described as having a particularly deep voice.

Anyone who thinks they may know the man in the image or who has any information that could help police, is asked to contact the force, quoting reference DPP/0057/23/03/2021/01/C.

This can be done online at bit.ly/DPPContactOnline, by emailing 101@dyfed-powys.pnn.police.uk, or by calling 101. If you are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired, text the non-emergency number on 07811 311 908.
