A 16-year-old girl was sexually assaulted while jogging through a railway underpass in Seymour last week.

Detectives are appealing for information following the attack. She was running through the underpass near Victoria St when she noticed a man jogging towards her about 3.50pm on Thursday.

The offender allegedly ran straight towards the girl and forced her towards a wall. Police believe he sexually assaulted her before she was able to fight him off and raise the alarm. He fled the scene.

Police have described the man as being aged in his late 30s to mid 40s, with strawberry blonde curly hair.

He was wearing a grey hooded windcheater with black writing, light blue jeans, and white runners with white laces.
Sexual Crime Squad detectives are investigating the incident, with the assistance of Seymour Sexual Offences and Child Abuse Investigation Team and Mitchell Crime Investigation Unit.
Anyone with information or who believes they know the man's identity can phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit
