Naked man attacks woman in Wirral street

A woman has been sexually assaulted by a man who was wandering naked in the street in Wirral.

Merseyside Police said the woman was "touched inappropriately over her clothing" in Alexandra Road, Prenton, just after 00:45 BST on Sunday.

Police said the man escaped on foot after the woman resisted, and local residents intervened.

Det Con Jon Head said: "This was a very disturbing incident and must have been terrifying for this young woman."
