Police have released an e-fit image of a man who has "unwashed, frizzy" hair down to his chest, a nose piercing, and a snake-like tattoo on his upper right arm after a sex assault in Plymouth.

An investigation is being carried out following reports of a sex assault on a female in the Honicknowle area on Monday, June 17.

Devon and Cornwall Police are now looking to identify the man in the computer-generated image above.

The man is described as between 5ft 8ins and 5ft 10ins tall, of medium-large build, and estimated to be between 35 and 55.

He has long, brown hair down to his chest that is described as "greasy, unwashed and frizzy", and a beard, or "possibly overgrown stubble with a patch missing on his top lip".

He wore a light green hoop piercing through his nose, and is said to have an old scar on the left side of his face between his ear and his eye, as well as a tattoo on his upper right arm which is described as a snake-type creature in a circle.

It is believed the man was wearing a dirty black short-sleeved t-shirt with white patches on it, grey Levi jeans with a rip in the knee, green trainers with a black Nike tick, a ring band on his left middle finger, and a gold band on his left wedding finger. He has a local accent, and smelt of Lynx and vape smells.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police via the Force website, or to telephone 101, quoting crime reference 50240147896.

Information can also be passed anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555111, or via their website.
