The incident occurred around 4.30pm, as the victim is the lone-worker at a commercial premises on Bradford Road, near to Allison Drive, Huddersfield.

"We would urge anyone who saw someone acting suspiciously, matching the suspect description, the efit image or who has any information about the incident to come forward. Enquiries are continuing."
