A SHEFFIELD student was sexually assaulted as she walked to a friend’s city centre flat in the early hours of Saturday.
The 22-year-old was walking through St Paul’s Place, next to Cafe Rouge, at around 2.30am, when she was grabbed from behind by a man who then tried to drag her sideways.
She managed to flee and raise the alarm.
Roman Kowalczyk, aged 32, of Jubilee Street, Rugby, has been charged with sexual assault.
He appeared at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
