Girl, 12, victim of sexual assault in Grimesthorpe

A man is being hunted after a 12-year-old girl was sexually assaulted in Sheffield.

The schoolgirl was attacked in the Grimesthorpe area at about 21:00 BST on 15 April, South Yorkshire Police said.

She was walking across waste ground between Barnsley Road and Earl Marshal Road when a man pinned her to the floor and assaulted her.

The suspect is Asian, in his 20s, with sideburns and a fringe, and was wearing a grey and yellow hooded top.

A police spokeswoman said the man is believed to "frequent the area" around Earl Marshal Road and was seen earlier that day near Osgathorpe Park.
