A manhunt is underway after a 10-year-old girl fought off a sex attacker who assaulted her as she walked in woodland.

The youngster managed to kick the man after he grabbed her in Claygate, Surrey, causing him to run off, police said. 

Detectives have released an e-fit of the attacker after the incident, which happened at about 6pm last Thursday.

A Surrey Police spokesman said: “The girl managed to kick the man and he ran off.

“He was seen by witnesses running along Stevens Lane in Claygate in the direction of Woodstock Lane towards Chessington.”

The attacker is described as an Asian male of 40 to 45 years old, 6ft 1in tall with a stocky build.

He had collar-length black hair, a full black beard and was wearing blue jogging bottoms, possibly with a Chelsea football club logo on, and a grey or white T shirt.

Detective Constable Helen Flower added: “I’d like to reassure the community that we’re making every effort to identify this man as quickly as we can.

“We have stepped up our presence in the area to provide reassurance and our specialist officers are working closely with the girl to support her.”
