Police appeal after a sexual assault on a school pupil

Northumbria Police

3:26pm 14th November 2017

Police in South Tyneside are appealing for information following a sexual assault on a pupil as they walked to school.

The teenager was near to Hebburn Comprehensive School this morning (November 14) at 8.50am when she was approached by a man on a pedal bike.

The girl was unhurt but left very shocked by the incident in Campbell Park Road.

This follows an earlier incident involving a man on a pedal bike near the school on Monday, November 7, with another pupil.

Police have been making extensive enquiries in the area since last week carrying out house to house enquiries, checking for CCTV footage and conducting extra patrols particularly before and after school times following the incident.


These enquiries are continuing and there will be increased patrols around the school both before and after the school day.

Acting Neighbourhood Inspector Angela Lewis said:

"We would urge anyone in the vicinity of the school who sees anything or anyone suspicious to speak to either the officers on patrol, or the school, and ask that any witnesses come forward and speak to us no matter how small they think the information is.

"Pupils and parents should remain vigilant and anyone with any information should contact us on 101, quoting reference 195 of 14/11/17 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
