A WOMAN was sexually assaulted in an incident in a Dewsbury park, detectives said today.

Officers said two men walked up to a 19-year-old woman who was sat with her friend on a bench near to the museum.

The men tried to speak to the victim but she told them to go away. As she got up to leave she was indecently touched by one of the men who then cycled away.

Police would like to speak to anyone who has information about the incident which took place between 7.20pm and 7.50pm in Crow Nest Park, Dewsbury, on Wednesday May 20.
