Detectives investigating reports of an assault in Eastleigh are today releasing CCTV stills of a man who they know was in the area at the time and they believe is a vital witness to what happened.

Police received a call from a member of the public shortly after midnight on Sunday, March 18, who said they had been told about an assault near Leo Leisure Bingo on Saturday night, March 17 (St Patrick’s day) shortly after 11.30pm. Officers have since spoken to the 45-year-old Eastleigh woman who was the victim but are still trying to piece together exactly what happened.

Detectives hope the man in the photos will come forward as they think he will have important information which could help them with the case.

They are asking for him or anyone who knows who he may be to contact Detective Constable Kat Grimmett on 101.
