Forensic clues used in indecent assault manhunt

FORENSIC evidence is being examined as part of the search for a man who indecently assaulted a 15-year-old girl in a Newtown park.

Police hope a distinctive comfit image will help people recognise the man for whom they are looking.

Darling Downs district officer Detective Acting Inspector Paul Hart said police were appealing for information from the public.

He said patrols of the Black Gully Reserve, near Jellicoe St, had been stepped up since the August 1 attack.

"We're looking at that area and speaking to anyone of interest in that vicinity," Det. Act. Insp. Hart said.

Police believe the girl was at Black Gully Reserve when she was approached by a man who attempted to start a conversation with her about 4.20pm.

The girl began to walk away when the man grabbed her by her backpack and a struggle ensued where she was pushed to the ground.

The man indecently assaulted her before fleeing the scene on foot when the girl continued to scream for help.

The girl was not physically injured.

The man is described as being Caucasian in appearance, aged in his early to mid-30s, about 167cm tall with light brown hair, thin build and a fair complexion.

Anyone with information call Crime Stoppers on 1800333000.
