A HUNT has been launched for a man after a teenager was attacked.

The 18-year-old victim was walking alone on Bittern Close, Gosport, between 12.30am and 1am on Friday when a man approached her and punched her in the face.

She fell to the ground and he continued to punch her and tried to undo her jeans.

He then got up and ran off.

The attacker is described as being five feet and seven inches tall, of a slim build, wearing glasses, and wearing a dark-coloured hoodie and jeans.

A Hampshire Constabulary statement says: "This type of opportunistic attack is quite rare, however understandably it would have left the victim very shaken.

"Did you witness the incident?

"Were you driving in the area at the time and have dashcam footage of a man matching the description of the suspect?"

Anyone with information can call police on 101, quoting 44190118921.
