The teenager had gone to meet a man to buy cannabis at the old railway lines in Ribbleton.

She approached the railway tunnel around 11.30pm on Saturday 18 March last year.

The girl was tripped up, pushed into a bush and subjected to a sexual assault – according to an allegation made to the police.

Preston Police have now released an EvoFit of the man.

DC Chloe Hamby from Preston CID said: “We need people to take a close look at the Evofit and if they recognise this man, get in touch.

“What the image doesn’t capture is a distinctive tattoo of a yellow and green snake the man is said to have on his face over his right eyebrow.

“He is also believed to speak with an Eastern European accent and is described as white, between 25 to 30 years old, tall and of slim build with blue eyes.”
