Lunchtime sex attack shocks Mumbles residents
INVESTIGATIONS are continuing into a lunchtime sex assault in a cemetery.
The lone female victim was attacked on Saturday as she walked through Oystermouth cemetery.
Police are continuing to appeal for anyone with information about the incident to come forward.
Meanwhile Mumbles councillor Anthony Colburn said the community had been left shocked and dismayed by the attack — and he urged anyone would to help the investigation to contact police.
He said: “Our sympathy goes to the lady involved and we are extremely keen that the perpetrator is apprehended as soon as possible.
“I and the community are shocked and dismayed at the news.
“I was very surprised that the incident took place in broad daylight. It is extremely shocking that something like this should have happened — I am sure that any members of the public with any information will contact the police immediately.”
The attack happened around 1.10pm on Saturday.
Police have issued a description of a man they want to talk to in connection with the incident — he is described as being white, with short brown hair, aged in his late 20s to early 30s, “over” 5 ft 8 in tall, and of a muscular build.
He was wearing a light coloured T-shirt, brown knee-length shorts, and flip-flops which were possibly white in colour.
Police say they are keen to speak to a man and woman who may have seen the victim running off from the attack towards Slade Road.
The incident is not being linked to last week’s sexual assault in the LC leisure centre.
