A DRUNKEN man who sexually assaulted a teenage girl in the street and followed her is being hunted by police.
Officers have released an e-fit image of the suspect, who targeted the woman as she walked along Barnsley Road, Brampton Bierlow, at around 10.20pm on June 21.
A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: "It’s then alleged that the drunk man approached her, slapped her bottom, grabbed her breasts and attempted to put his hands down her trousers. He then followed her for approximately a kilometre.
"The man we’re looking to speak to is thought to be around 5ft 7ins to 5ft 8ins tall, skinny build with dark hair."
Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting investigation number 14/95303/19.
