The woman was not injured but was left in a state of shock by her ordeal.

PC Ryan Daniels said: “This cycle path runs adjacent to the railway line and is used by quite a few people.

“We think this man was jogging as the woman did see him run past several times before he lunged at her.

“We are looking to anyone who may have seen this jogger or may recognise him from the description.”

The attacker was white, in his late 20s or 30s and was about 5ft 8ins and medium to heavy build.

His hair was cropped and he was wearing a navy blue tracksuit and sweatshirt.
