We are offering a reward of up to £3,000 for information on a sexual assault which occurred in Watford on July 26th last year.

The victim, a woman in her 20s, was assaulted as she walked home from a town-centre nightclub in the early hours of the morning.

The offender approached her from behind and sexually assaulted her on Rickmansworth road, at the junction of Harwoods Road. He then fled on Harwoods Road.

Despite a thorough investigation by Hertfordshire Constabulary, he has not been caught.

Now Crimestoppers is offering the reward for information that leads to his arrest and conviction.

An abhorrent crime

“This was an abhorrent crime which will no doubt haunt this young woman for many years to come.

“It cannot be easy for her knowing that he is still out there. I would urge anyone who knows who this man is to contact us anonymously.

“Please do the right thing. Your information may help take him off the streets and could prevent attacking another innocent woman.”

- Julia Hughes, Regional Manager for Crimestoppers in Hertfordshire
