A 45-YEAR-OLD woman was sexually assaulted by a van driver after her car broke down.

The victim was waiting by her vehicle, which had a flat tyre, in Watts Lane, Chislehurst at the junction with Summer Hill last Tuesday at around 12.30am.

The man stopped to help her but as he was changing the wheel he kept brushing up against the woman. When her friend turned up to help, the suspect returned to his vehicle.

But the victim realised she still had the suspect's jack and walked to his vehicle to return it.

Then the man, who was sat in his van, grabbed her by the wrist and groped her, telling her she was lucky that her friend had turned up or he would have 'dragged her into the bushes'. He then sped away from the scene.

Police are now appealing for anyone with information about the incident to contact them.

The suspect is white, aged about 40 and approximately 5ft 10ins tall with short light mousey coloured hair.

His van was black or dark grey, slightly smaller than a transit van, with wording on the side.

The wording was brightly coloured, with each letter a different colour. It is thought to have said 'Creative' and 'Media'.

Anyone with any information can contact Bromley police's Sapphire Unit on 020 8284 8774 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
