Police are appealing for witnesses after a report that a man sexually assaulted a woman in Cheltenham yesterday, Sunday 11 February.
The incident happened shortly before 8.30am on the Honeybourne Line, close to the Queen's Road end.
A woman aged in her 30s who was out running spotted a man who appeared to be talking to himself and was walking around in circles.
As she passed him, he began to run after her before touching her bottom.
She ran faster and the man then walked off in the opposite direction, towards the town centre.
The man was described as being white, aged in his 40s, about 5ft 7in in height and of a slim build.
He had a reddish-blonde bushy beard and was wearing a pale blue neckerchief, a dirty grey Beanie hat, a round-necked jumper and jeans worn low, revealing boxer shorts beneath. He was also wearing a backpack.
Officers searched the area following the sexual assault and have been trawling CCTV.
They would now like to speak to anyone who may have seen a person acting suspiciously in the area at around that time, or who has any other information which may be relevant.
