POLICE have appealed for witnesses after a report of a sexual assault in Barrow.
A 51-year-old woman reported being assaulted while walking her dog at Earnsie Bay, north of West Shore Park, at around midday on Monday.
She was approached by a man known to her, also in his early 50s, who forced her to the ground in the grassed area at the edge of the beach and sexually assaulted her.
They then walked together past West Shore Park and got into a silver coloured Renault Megane, which was in car park at the end of West Shore Road.
The woman was not injured during the incident.
Police are appealing for any witnesses to the assault, or saw the couple to call 101 and ask for PPU South or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
