A 14-YEAR-old girl was sexually assaulted by a middle-aged man at a beach in broad daylight.
Police have trawled through CCTV to catch the sick attacker who pounced on the child as she stood near a statue on The Esplanade in Weymouth, Dorset.
He reportedly lifted her top up and touched her inappropriately on her bottom over her clothing at around 2.40pm last Tuesday.
The man – described as white, in his mid 40s and bald – walked towards the Jubilee Clock Tower on the town side of the road after his attack.
He was wearing a blue T-shirt and pushing either a pram or a wheelchair.
Cops yesterday appealed for witnesses to come forward.
Weymouth Police Constable Toby Norman said: “This incident understandably left the victim feeling very distressed and we are determined to identify the man responsible.
“We are carrying out a number of enquiries, including a trawl of CCTV footage in the area, and I am urging anyone who witnessed what happened to please come forward.
“I am particularly keen to speak to a group of three older women who I understand were walking near to the man at the time of the incident and are likely to have seen what took place.”
