Detectives revisited the Cameron Street area one week after a 21-year-old woman was sexually assaulted.

It was reported that at around 1.45am last Tuesday, she was attacked by an unknown male in the area.

He was described as being a foreign national, approximately 5'6" tall, of medium build, with short dark hair and a fringe.

He was wearing a blue hooded top and blue jeans.

A PSNI spokesperson explained: "Detectives re-visited the scene at a similar time to when the assault occurred and distributed leaflets appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or who may have saw a man matching the description of the attacker in the area, to contact them at Serious Crime Branch in Ladas Drive on 0845 600 8000.

"Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
