A woman in her 30s fought off a sex attacker.

The assault happened in an alleyway between Station Road and Cronshaw Close, Didcot, at about 3.30pm on Monday.

Police described the suspect as a ‘stocky’ Asian man in his 20s with chubby cheeks.

He was wearing a dark jacket with a fur collar and beige trousers.

Det Con Thomas Smalley, leading the investigation, appealed to anyone with information to call police on 101.

He said: “This was an attack on a woman in daylight which, thankfully, is rare, but has understandably left the victim shaken.”
