The incident happened around 5pm on Friday 18 July as the woman made her way down Church Street.

As she passed the Evoque nightclub she was grabbed around the wasit and corned by a group of seven or eight men.

Lancashire Police say the men spoke to her in a foreign language and suggestively pointed at parts of her body.

The woman asked to be let go and a member of the public intervened and the men let the woman go.

PC Nick Mattock from Preston Police said: “Although this woman wasn’t physically assaulted she has been left understandably shaken by this incident.

“If anyone saw this incident or saw a group of Asian men in the area at the time, I would encourage them to speak to us.”
