Attempted sexual assault on sex worker in Holbeck

Police are appealing for information following an attempted serious sexual assault on a sex worker in Leeds.

The victim managed to break free and ran to a passing vehicle for help.

The man was described as white, about 5ft 11ins tall, aged 20 to 25, and skinny build. He had some ginger stubble on his face and was a black jumper with ‘Duffer’ written on the chest in white, blue jeans, and a red a white baseball cap worn backwards.

“We are liaising with third sector agencies who work with the women in the area and our colleagues from the local neighbourhood policing team are operating increased patrols of the area to offer suitable reassurance while we our enquiries continue.”
