Officers are hoping that residents living in Milford and Godalming will be able to help them with an investigation following new information from the victim.

On Wednesday 6 July last year, a 12-year-old school girl reported that she was walking along Hawthorn Road around 4pm when she was approached by a man who touched her before walking off. It is now alleged that the man sexually assaulted her and officers would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information that could progress the investigation.

The man is described as white, around 6ft tall, of medium build and aged between 40-50 years. He had short, straight black hair and smelt a bit smokey. He was wearing dark blue jeans, a lighter blue short sleeved top and old black boots.

DC Nell Rodriguez said: “This is a serious offence and we’re doing all we can to find this man to establish what has happened. I appreciate that a considerable period of time has passed but I would urge anyone who remembers seeing something unusual or suspicious around the time of the incident to do the right thing and call in with information. I would also like to reassure the public that we believe this to be an isolated incident and we have had no reports of anything similar in the area.”

Anyone with information about this incident should call Surrey Police on 101 quoting reference 45160058208 or you can use the online reporting system found at https://report.police.uk/ and enter the reference number in the ‘Additional information' section.

Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
