Detectives investigating a sexual assault have released CCTV of a man they want to speak to in connection with the incident.

The assault happened at bus stop behind Old Roan train station in Aintree late at night.


A 20-year-old local woman had got off the train at the station and was waiting for her bus home when a man approached her.

After trying to talk to her, the man tried to kiss her and when she pushed him away he grabbed at her body. He let go when she pushed him away and called for help.

The victim managed to catch her bus home and called the police. It is believed her attacker went back into the train station on the Ormskirk-bound platform.

She was left shaken but unhurt following the incident, which happened at 11.30pm on Friday July 19.

Detectives are keen to identify and trace the man in the CCTV in order to progress their investigation.

Anyone who recognises him is asked to call Detective Constable Mal Gordon at Marsh Lane CID on 0151 777 3823 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555
