POLICE are appealing for witnesses and information following a sexual assault in Stevenage this morning (Wednesday).

It is believed a man approached a woman from behind and touched her inappropriately. The woman, who was not injured, then ran off.
DS Graeme Walsingham is investigating and said: "I would reassure people that these types of incidents are infrequent in Stevenage, which is why we are keen to find out who is responsible and prevent any similar incidents.
