Police hunt sex fiend on the prowl in Sheffield after girl, 13, assaulted while walking in woods near duck pond | The Sun

COPS are hunting a sex fiend after a 13-year-old girl was assaulted while walking the woods near a duck pond.

The attack reportedly happened at around 8am on February 8, near Charlton Brook in Chapeltown, Sheffield.

Officers have worked with the victim to produce a computer generated e-fit of a man they would like to identify.

The teen victim – who cannot be identified for legal reasons – continues to receive support from officers.

Officers are urging any residents who live in the area to consider if they hear of saw anything suspicious on that morning.

Those who remember seeing someone who looks like the e-fit image should also get in touch.

Cops added that although a previous appeal had mentioned the assault happened near Mount Pleasant Close, they now believe the girl was assaulted in a wooded area close to the Chambers estate and Charlton Brook.

Investigating officer Wendy Howe said: “We continue to work with the victim and her family to identify the person responsible for this serious offence.

"We know that the incident has caused concern locally and would ask anyone with information about this matter to come forward, especially if you recognise the individual pictured.

“As I’m sure you will understand, this type of offence is highly traumatic and sometimes this means we get new information and new lines of enquiry as the victim is able to process what has happened.
