Police issue appeal for a sex attacker without mentioning suspect was man wearing a woman’s clothes

  • Hertfordshire Police fail to mention wanted sex attacker wore women’s clothing
  • The force issued a witness appeal following a sex attack in Bishop’s Stortford
  • Police did not make the details public until after the man was charged in May

Hertfordshire police called for public help after a victim was left traumatised by a late-night assault in Bishop’s Stortford in December.

But they made no reference to the attacker’s gender or appearance, saying only they wanted to hear about ‘anyone acting suspiciously in the area’.
