South West Wales

Oystermouth cemetery sex assault investigated

A woman has been sexually assaulted at a cemetery in Swansea.

The woman was attacked by a man in Oystermouth cemetery in Mumbles while she was walking home at 13:10 BST on Saturday.

South Wales Police have appealed for information but are not linking the attack to an investigation at Swansea LC2 where three girls were assaulted.

They want to speak to a man and woman who may have seen the victim running off.

The force said the woman went towards the Slade Road area of Mumbles.

The suspect is described as white, with short brown hair, and in his late twenties to early thirties.

He is taller than 5ft 8in and of a muscular build. He was wearing a light T-shirt, brown knee-length shorts and flip flops which were possibly white.

The man is believed to have been in the Newton Road area of Mumbles before the attack.

Last Wednesday, in a separate incident, three girls aged eight, nine and 15 were assaulted by a man in the LC swimming pool in Swansea.

The centre was closed for a short time while police searched the premises.
