Man sought in relation to Westport alleged assault

Police are asking for the public to help them find a man following an alleged assault in Westport earlier this month.

Police said on Friday July 6 at about 6.50pm a man entered a rural property on Utopia Rd and asked the occupant for money.

"When she declined to give him money he assaulted her before fleeing through a neighbouring property."

Detective Mal Haughey said police are still looking for information in regard to the incident.

“We are asking anyone with CCTV cameras on their properties in rural Westport to check these and contact us if they see anyone acting suspiciously on or near their property in recent weeks.

We also want anyone who lives on Utopia Rd who may have seen this man either on July 6 or around this time to give us a call," Det Haughey said. 

The man is described as tall and thin, wearing a dark woollen beanie and dark zip-up jacket.

Anyone with information on this incident or other concerning activity in Westport is asked to call 03 788 8316.

Information can also be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
