Woman sexually assaulted in her own home in Chesham
A WOMAN in her 60s was sexually assaulted by a man who forced his way into her home in Chesham on Tuesday night.
Police have released an e-fit image of a man they want to speak to in connection with the attack and have launched an appeal for information.
At about 10.30pm on Tuesday, the woman was at home in Wallington Road when a man knocked on her door.
The man forced his way into the house and sexually assaulted the victim.
He is described as an Asian man aged between 20 and 22. He was about 5ft 8ins and of a lean build. He was wearing a blue jogging jacket with a hood, possibly a stripey hood.
It is believed he spoke with a West Indian accent.
Det Insp Deborah Goff from Aylesbury Force CID said: “I want to reassure the public that we are doing everything to catch this offender.
“This happened at a time when there may have still been people around in the area, so I’d like to hear from anyone who recognises this man or saw anyone acting suspiciously on Tuesday night.
“I also want to take this opportunity to say that if anyone has any concerns at all, please do make contact with your local neighbourhood team and they would be happy to help.
“Please take care when opening your door to strangers. If possible, use a door chain and always ask for proper identification from people purporting to be from a specific organisation.”
Anyone with information on this incident can contact Thames Valley Police on 101.
