A 24-year-old man has been arrested and bailed on suspicion of sexual assault after an incident in Milton Keynes on Tuesday.

At 5.15pm, a 24-year-old woman was walking along the Redway parallel with Silbury Boulevard from the direction of the V8. As she turned into Adelphi Street, she was grabbed from behind by a man who tried to push her to the floor. He sexually assaulted her and ran back towards Silbury Boulevard.

He is described as white and in his twenties, of slim build and average height, with fair skin and short mousey brown and scruffy hair. He was wearing a grey round-necked t-shirt, baggy jeans and was carrying a rectangular dark-coloured shoulder bag with a long strap.

The 24-year-old man has been bailed until December 10.
