The girl tried to walk away but he followed her along Lincoln Road, away from the city centre.

He then caught up with her and grabbed her, before hugging her and kissing her neck, and leading her down Cromwell Road, back towards the city centre until they reached the corner of Russell Street where she was further assaulted.
