Investigators are appealing for public assistance after a woman was assaulted in Sydney’s south-west earlier this week.

Just after 6.15pm on Thursday (13 February 2020), a 27-year-old woman exited the Chester Hill Railway Station and walked east on Waldron Road, before heading north on Priam Street.

As the woman went to cross the road at the intersection of Priam Street and Forshaw Avenue, a man approached her from behind, put a belt around her neck and pulled it towards him.

The woman turned around and confronted the man who ran west along Forshaw Avenue, and then south along Priam Street.

The woman was not physically injured and made her way home where she notified police.

Officers from Bankstown Police Area Command have now commenced an investigation.

As inquiries continue, investigators have now released CCTV images of a man who they believe may be able to assist with their inquiries.

The man depicted is described as being of Indian/Sub-Continental appearance, aged in his 20s, about 170cm to 180cm tall, of a medium build, and with short dark hair.

He is shown wearing a black polo shirt, denim jeans, black sneakers and is carrying a shopping bag.

Anyone who may have information that could assist with the identity of the man should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence.
