Police are appealing for witnesses after a woman was sexually assaulted in Peterhead.
The 37-year-old was attacked on Sunday at 9.20pm in the Windmill Street area.
Officers said the woman was walking home when a man “engaged her in conversation, became threatening and sexually assaulted her”.
She managed to get away and the man is believed to have turned into King Street.
He is described as being in his early 40s, just under 6ft and spoke with a foreign accent.
He was wearing a dark blue Puffa-style jacket with the hood up, white gloves, light blue jeans and black trainers or boots.
Detective Sergeant Scott Massie, of the Public Protection Unit in Fraserburgh, said: “The woman was understandably shocked and upset and we are appealing for witnesses or anyone who can help trace the person responsible to get in touch.
“If you have information please contact police on 101 or make a call anonymously to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
