Police have released an image of a man in connection with the sexual assault of a 16-year-old girl.
The girl was assaulted shortly after the Preston North End and Middlesborough.
We reported earlier this week, police were looking for a man described as Asian, 5ft 11in, average build and wearing a light-coloured tracksuit sexually assaulted the girl before making off from the scene.
Now CCTV footage has been released of a man police would like to speak to, in connection with the assault.
The second report of an assault has also been released by Police, who have said, ‘At shortly after 10pm on the same night, we received a report that a 19-year-old woman had been approached and pushed to the ground on the car park of Home Bargains on Deepdale Road.’
Det Con Liz Sheard, of Preston CID, said, ‘Following extensive enquiries, we believe the two incidents are linked.
‘A number of people were in the area around the time following the end of the Preston North End and Middlesbrough match.
‘We want to speak to the pictured man as part of our investigation. If you saw anything or recognise this man, please get in contact with us immediately.’
