Police have released a sketch of a man as part of their investigation into the alleged sexual assault of a 12-year-old girl in the New South Wales Riverina region last year.
The girl was walking along Pine Avenue, Leeton, when she was approached by an unknown man.
She was then taken to a nearby location and sexually assaulted, police said on Monday.
The incident is believed to have occurred between August and September last year, between 4pm and 4.30pm, on a weekday.
