Police are appealing for the public’s help after an alleged attempted sexual assault in the inner west.

Investigators say that a woman, 28, was standing on Terminus Street in Petersham about 1.30am on Friday, when a man approached her and forced himself on her, holding her against a wall.

The woman pushed the man away, and ran away down Crystal Street.

A short time later, he drove up to her and tried to speak to her before he left. The woman then rang police, who are now looking for the man.

He was aged in his 20s with a slim build and an olive complexion. He was wearing a black polo with a red collar, cuffed tracksuit pants, a dark trucker cap worn backwards and bright red joggers.

Anyone with information, can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
