Police patrols are continuing in a Sheffield suburb after a sex attack.

Officers made a number of return visits to the Grange Lane area of Handsworth over the weekend after a woman was attacked on Bank Holiday Monday.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said they were 'reassurance patrols' following an attack on a woman in her 40s as she walked her dog.

The woman was targeted as she walked through fields close to Grange Lane.

She told police the man responsible was white, in his late teens to early 20s and about 5ft 7ins tall.

He was wearing a lilac hooded top and thick, black rimmed glasses. His hair was black and slightly wavy.

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
