A woman has been sexually assaulted in broad daylight while walking along an Ipswich street.

Police are appealing for public help to identify a man who could assist with inquiries into a sexual assault at Basin Pocket.

The shocking attack happened about 4pm, Monday, August 1 when the woman was walking along Blackall Street and a man approached her from behind.

He sexually assaulted her before fleeing on foot.

Police describe him as a young male, dark skinned in appearance, wearing a white T-shirt, khaki shorts and thongs.

CCTV footage obtained nearby shows the man fleeing the scene, but investigators are appealing for anyone who may have been around Blackall Street at the time, or who may have dashcam footage, to contact them.
