Police have released an Evofit image of a suspect following an assault in Exeter.

The attack took place along The Quay in Exeter on the evening of Friday December 7.

At about 7.50pm a woman in her thirties was running along the canal path between The Port Royal pub and Trews Weir Bridge when she was approached by a man from behind and pushed against a wall.

She screamed and the man ran off.

The suspect is described as Indian or Asian in appearance, aged approximately 28 to 30 years old and of a slight build.

He has thick wavy dark hair which is short and distinctly has bushy eyebrows.
