CRIMESTOPPERS is offering a reward of up to £5,000 for information on the sexual assault of a woman in Salisbury.

Just after midnight on Sunday, May 19, 2019, the woman, in her 30s, was sexually assaulted by a man not known to her in Hudson’s Field, Castle Road.

A travelling circus was at Hudson’s Field at the time, but the offender is not believed to be a member of the circus.

An investigation into this crime has continued over the past 12 months.

"Our charity believes that everyone has the right to walk the streets safely without experiencing harm. We don’t want anybody else to be assaulted by this individual.
