Police to increase patrols following assault

POLICE have promised increased patrols in parts of Axminster after a 15-year-old girl was assaulted on the pathway running from Foxhill and Long Ragg Court.

The incident took place at about 8:35am on Tuesday, October 21st, and it is understood the victim was on her way to Axe Valley Community College.

The college issued an urgent safety notice to students, urging them to walk to and from the college in groups if possible.

In addition, the college is set to hold a safety briefing for students later today (Wed).

A police spokesperson said: "The suspect is described as a white man, in his 20s, 6ft, of slim to proportionate build.

"He was wearing a hooded top, jeans and spoke in a deep voice. "There will be increased police patrols in the area over the forthcoming days.

Anyone who saw a man matching the description in the area, or has any information relevant to this incident, is asked to phone 101 quoting log 167 of 21/10/14.  

"Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111."

The police statement did not say what injuries, if any, the girl suffered, but the ambulance service has no record of the incident and was not requested to attend.
