Detectives have released CCTV images of a man they want to trace over a serious sexual assault near to a pub in Rotherham.

A 21-year-old woman was attacked in the Bawtry Road area of Wickersley, close to The Masons, between 11pm on Saturday, July 5 and 2.30am on Sunday, July 6.

Detective Inspector Steve Ashmore, from Rotherham CID, said despite extensive enquiries, no arrests have been made.

“We believe this to be an isolated incident and feel there is no risk to the wider community at this time,” he said.

“We have conducted a number of enquiries locally and throughout Rotherham but so far have not been able to identify a suspect.

“We’d really like to speak to the man pictured as we believe he could assist.”
