POLICE investigating an indecent assault in Cobden are expected to return to the town this week.
A 34-year-old woman was in the kitchen of a workplace at 3.30pm on Thursday when the incident took place.
Police said an unknown man walked in off the street, approached the woman and during a conversation, assaulted her.
It’s likely police will return to Cobden early this week to doorknock and speak with residents.
The offender, who was seen in McKenzie Street, has been described as aged in his 40s, about 180cm tall with a shaved head, a dark, pointy beard and decayed teeth.
He was wearing a blue and fluorescent yellow polo shirt, with a long, charcoal-coloured jacket.
On Friday, Sergeant Chris Asenjo, from the Warrnambool sexual offences and child abuse investigation team, said the woman had been emotionally traumatised by the incident.
He said police had door-knocked in the general vicinity of the incident on Thursday and Friday and distributed flyers to business owners.
