Preston Police want to speak to a man who was seen in The Fleece in Meadow Street.

A 16-year-old girl was walking in Meadow Street on Tuesday 27 November between 10.10pm and 10.15pm when she was approached by a man close to the Catherine Beckett Community Centre and was sexually assaulted.

Shortly after 10pm, the same night, police had reports a 19-year-old woman had been approached and pushed to the ground on the car park of Home Bargains in Deepdale Road – she managed to escape the man and run off.
