Police are appealing for information after a woman was left injured after a serious sexual assault in Leeds.

Officers were called to Beeston Road at around 10.52pm on March 6, where an 18-year-old woman was found with a head injury.

She was taken to hospital and it was discovered that she had also suffered serious hip injuries.

Detective Chief Inspector Elizabeth Belton, of Protective Services (Crime), said: “We believe this woman was standing at the bus stop close to Malvern Road, when she was attacked by the suspect.

“He is described as an Asian man, in his early twenties, of slim build with receding dark hair.

“Anyone who saw a man of similar description in this area at around the time stated is asked to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”

Beeston Road is likely to remain closed between Tempest Road and the junction with Parkfield Avenue for the rest of today (Saturday), while police continue to carry out enquiries.
