Surrey Police are appealing for information after a woman was sexually assaulted in Nork Park, Banstead, last week.

The attack happened around 8.30am on Wednesday, April 14.

In a statement appealing for witnesses, police described how the woman attacked was jogging through the park at the time.

"The woman was running through the wooded area of the park around 8.30am when a man approached her, pushed her to the ground and assaulted her before trying to pull her leggings down.

"The woman managed to push him away and he ran off," the statement read.

Surrey Police also issued details on the suspect, who they said is described as around 6ft 1 tall, of a thin build and was wearing a grey hooded top with the hood up, grey jogging bottoms and a black fabric face covering right up to his eyes, speaking "with an Irish accent".

Investigating officer Detective Sergeant Ben Kirby added the following:

"Incidents of this nature are obviously a cause for concern, and we would like to reassure the local community that we are doing everything we can to ensure that the man is identified and arrested as soon as possible.

"We are also providing specialist support to the victim, who has understandably been left extremely shaken as a result of her ordeal."
