Police release picture of suspect in Newcastle assault on woman

Detectives investigating a serious assault on a 19-year-old woman in Newcastle in July have issued a photo of a man they believe can assist with their investigation.

The incident occurred in the Down Road/Beech Avenue of the resort. The man is believed to be in his late teens, 5ft 10ins tall, of slim to medium build.

He is pictured wearing dark blue jeans and a light-coloured T-shirt.

A spokesman for the PSNI said: "Anyone who recognises this man is asked to contact police on 0845 600 8000. Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

"If you think that you recognise yourself in the photo, please contact police so that we can at least eliminate you from our enquiries."
