Detectives from the Sexual Crime Squad are investigating after a woman was sexually assaulted on a walking track in Broadmeadows last week.
Investigators have been told a 37-year-old woman was walking along the track between Seabrook Reserve and Railway Crescent when she crossed paths with an unknown man about 7.55pm on Friday, 11 December.
The victim continued walking west for a short distance before the unknown man approached and grabbed her from behind.
He sexually assaulted the woman before she was able to break free, and the man then fled the scene towards the railway line.
Investigators have released a digital face image of a man they believe can assist with their enquiries.
The man is perceived to be aged in his 20s, Caucasian in appearance, around 178cm tall with a muscular build and broad shoulders.
At the time he was wearing a grey hooded jumper and white shoes.
Detectives are keen to speak to anyone who may be able to assist identifying the man, or who was in the area at the time of the incident and witnessed a man matching the description.
