Police are appealing for witnesses following a reported sexual assault on the riverside of the Ormeau Embankment, close to Ormeau Road, on Saturday 10th June 2023 following a music concert.

Constable Ashe said: “It was reported that between 11.15pm and 11.45pm a teenage girl was approached by an unknown man who pushed her against the railings on the embankment, held her by force and touched her inappropriately. She was then able to make off from the scene.

“We are keen to identify this man who is reported as being white, approximately 5’10, slim build with stubble facial hair who was wearing a white bucket hat and blue denim shorts.
