Wiltshire Police is appealing for witnesses after a man was indecently assaulted on Gipsy Lane, Swindon.

Between 11pm on Saturday 24 June 2017 and 12.30am on Sunday 25 June 2017 the 19-year-old was walking along Gipsy Lane, from the Mini plant towards Wickes, when an unknown man approached him and started chatting to him – as they got closer to Wickes the man assaulted the victim.

However, he managed to get away from the suspect who also made off.

Although shaken, the victim was unhurt.

The offender is described as being between 20 and 30-years-old, short with a bit of a belly and having dark curly hair and tanned skin.  He was wearing dark jeans and a shirt.
