After a sexual assault on a woman with learning difficulties in West Bromwich police have issued a CCTV image of a suspect.
The 19 year-old was hugged and kissed against her wishes on the fifth level of a multi-storey car park off Queens Square.
She'd been persuaded to go in there by a man thought to be in his late teens.
Police are now looking to speak to a suspect who they've described as an Asian man of a slim build with a beard and a moustache.
He was wearing a long, dark, grey coat when the assault took place on 2 March at around 3.45pm.
Detective Constable Tom Keady is from West Midlands police.
He said: “From CCTV inquiries in the area, we’ve identified a man we’d like to talk to about what happened, which is being treated as a sexual assault."
“Whoever carried out this assault targeted a vulnerable young woman, who was left very scared by what happened."
“I would urge anyone who knows the man’s identity to call us on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
