The man is described as white, around 20 years old and spoke with an English accent.

Shortly after the incident, the victim spoke to another woman who was walking towards the underpass, and we are keen to speak to this woman in case she witnessed the incident or has any information that could help our investigation. If you were in the area at the time, please do come forward.”
