A man has been arrested by detectives investigating an attempted serious sexual assault on a woman in Leeds.
The man was arrested yesterday evening following a renewed appeal in connection with the incident that occurred on Thursday, 5 May, on the footpath that passes under the viaduct between Domestic Road and Cross Ingram Road.
The victim, aged in her twenties, had been walking on the footpath that passes under the viaduct between Domestic Road and Cross Ingram Road between 9.15am and 9.20am last Thursday when she was attacked.
She was grabbed from behind by a male who dragged her to a nearby grassed area. He was disturbed by a passer-by and ran off into morning rush hour traffic.
The suspect was described as wearing a black jacket with a fur-trimmed hood, a black beanie hat, and a black face covering over his mouth.
The victim is said to have been “left traumatised” by the incident and “specially-trained officers are helping to support her” as the police continue to make enquiries.
He remains in custody and detectives from West Yorkshire Police Homicide and Major Enquiry Team are continuing enquiries.
