Police are hoping to trace a woman who may have been told information about sexual assaults when she was a child.

The woman would have been aged between four and ten at the time of the reported assault, and would now be aged in her mid-30s to mid-40s.

It is thought she may have been called Kim, Kimberley or something similar.

She is said to have had brown hair that was shoulder length or longer when she was the possible child witness. 

It relates to a report of historic sexual assaults on a young girl that were said to have happened between 1990 and 1994.

These were reported to have taken place at a residential address in Plymouth.

It is understood that the complainant and the potential witness were both pupils at Hyde Park Infants’ School or Hyde Park Juniors’ School at the time, although police have stressed the incidents being investigated are in no way linked to the school.

Police Constable Nicola Saunter said: “These reported incidents occurred out of sight at a private address in the early 1990s.

“The potential female witness is believed to have spoken with the victim about the incidents around the time and may have information which could assist our enquiries.

“The witness and the victim attended the same school, albeit in different academic years but we would like to be clear that the incidents we are investigating are in no way linked to the school.

“We appreciate that it has been a long time since the incidents took place, but we are hoping that this individual recognises themselves from the description, and we would ask that they get in touch.”

If you recognise yourself or someone else from the description, information can be reported to police on 101 or via the Devon and Cornwall Police force website, quoting reference 50001199585.
