A man who police want to identify in connection with the sexual assault of two schoolgirls, including one which happened a year ago, is still yet to be found as police relaunch their appeal.

The sexual assault, which took place on July 10 2017, took place while the schoolgirl was riding her bike along the Hogsmill River Estate in Ewell.

In the incident, a man pushed the 15-year-old off her bike and sexually assaulted her. However, she managed to fight the man off and he ran away in the Ewell direction.

The same man attacked another girl, aged 10, on August 17 2017 in Claygate while she was walking to her friend’s house.

In an appeal on social media on Tuesday (July 10 2018), Surrey Police said: “Detectives are still investigating these serious crime and are determined to identify the man in the CCTV footage. Do you recognise him?

“We have DNA of this man [who committed the offences] so can easily eliminate any names of information given to us.”

Officers released CCTV images of a man in a bid to identify him where he was seen walking along Stevens’ Lane before running into Hill View Road which is the entrance to Ruxley Heights private estate and Berkeley Gardens, Claygate.

Leading the investigation, detective chief inspector Jo Hayes said last year: “We need to identify this person as soon as possible.

“If you know who he is or if this person is you, I urge you to contact police either by calling 101 or attending your nearest police station.”

DCI Hayes added: “We have DNA of the man we’d like to speak to so can easily rule people out of our enquiries from any names provided to us.

“Enquiries remain underway and it is only a matter of time until we find the person responsible for these attacks.

“The two incidents have understandably been very concerning for the local communities are being investigated as a priority.

“We have had a great response from members of the public to our previous appeals and I would like to thank everyone for all their assistance so far.

“Local neighbourhood teams are continuing with enquiries around the areas concerned and officers have also increased patrols in the vicinity of both assaults.”

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting PR/45170090450 or alternatively ring Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
