A 20-YEAR-OLD woman was sexually assaulted in Cowley Road in the early hours of Saturday. 

Police only released the details today and said they are hunting the man who followed and then inappropriately touched the woman, who was walking away from the city centre at about 2.30am.

The woman pushed the man away before running from the area. The man is described as either black or Asian, about 6ft tall, with short black hair.

He was wearing a hooded top, which was white with a red zip and the inside of the hood was also red.

The woman was not injured during the incident.
