Woman sexually assaulted while walking near Wychall Reservoir

Detective Constable Fay Mason hunting a man who subjected a woman to a serious sexual assault while walking near a local nature reserve.

The woman, aged 63, was at Wychall Reservoir on Friday 18th November when she was approached by a man who asked for a cigarette light.

She obliged but moments later − on a path running between Popes Lane and Wychall Road − he grabbed her from behind, dragged her to the floor and assaulted her.

It’s understood the attacker − a white man thought to be in his 30s or 40s − spoke with a Scottish accent and was smartly dressed in blue trousers and black pointed shoes.

The woman also recalls her attacker smelling strongly of aftershave.

DC Mason, said: “This is a shocking attack on a woman by a stranger…we need to identify her attacker as soon as possible.

“The lady has provided some strong appeal points, namely that he spoke with what’s she’s convinced was a Scottish accent and that he was well dressed.

“If anyone believes they know who the offender is − or was near Wychall reservoir at around 5pm on Friday 18 November − I would urge them to contact me on the 101 number.”

DC McGrath can also be contacted by email on f.mason@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk or people can leave information anonymously with Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
