A sex attacker has struck in Chippenham.

A teenage girl was groped by a man on Malmesbury Road on Monday afternoon.

The incident, which took place at 3.20pm has been described as concerning.

Police are looking for a man described as being white, in his 40s with a stocky build and short dark hair and stubble.

He was wearing a dark coloured puffer jacket and dark smart looking trousers. He was seen walking away towards Portal Close.

A police spokesman said: "This is a concerning incident which was understandably very upsetting for the victim. The offence took place at a busy time of day, so someone may well have seen something. We are appealing for anyone who may have been in the area at the time, or have dash cam footage that might help identify the offender."
