police are urging the public to help them track down a man wanted for sexually assaulting a woman in a Leeds pub.

The 20-year-old victim was attacked in The Griffin public house, Boar Lane, at around 7.45pm on Saturday, March 14.

Earlier this month officers released CCTV images of the man they want to identify. Detective Constable Lee Thimm, of Leeds District CID, said: “The CCTV images are fairly recognisable yet we have not anyone come forward to name him.

“He was among a group of men socialising at the pub that we believe may have been from the Wakefield, Castleford or Pontefract area.

“I would like to hear from anyone who recognises him or who has any information that could assist the investigation.”

The man is described as white, in his early forties, around 5ft 10in tall and of average build. He was wearing jeans and blue jacket.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact DC Thimm at Elland Road via 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
