Police are looking for a man in his 50s after a woman was indecently assaulted in Melbourne’s north last month.
A 29-year-old woman was walking along the Merri Creek trail in Brunswick East just after 5pm on July 9 when a man allegedly yelled abuse at her before indecently assaulting the victim and pulling her hair.
Victoria Police have released an image of a man described as Caucasian, about 177cm tall with a medium build and short, light brown hair, who may be able to assist with their inquiries.
Police says he was wearing “a black windcheater, with faded black jeans and street sneakers”.

The assault occurred as the woman approached the eastern end of Albion Street. She noticed the offender a short distance ahead, yelling abuse at her.
The man then aggressively indecently assaulted the woman, who fell into a metal railing behind her. He then pulled her hair before walking south along Merri Creek trail.
