The search for a man wanted over allegations of a serious sexual assault in Poole has extended to Dorchester and Weymouth.
Dorset Police are searching for 32-year-old Dean Goodwin who's believed to be responsible for an attack against a woman in her twenties at an address in Poole in the early hours of Friday 23 November 2012.
Goodwin, who is from Poole, is white, five feet ten inches tall and has a stocky, muscular build. He has very short hair, to the extent that he may appear bald.
Officers are advising members of the public that they should not approach Goodwin if they see him. They should call the police immediately on 999.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Dean Goodwin should call 0800 056 0154 or 0207 158 0011.
Detective Inspector Marcus Hester, from Dorset Police's Major Crime Team, said: "We need to trace Dean Goodwin urgently and I would urge any member of the public to contact the police immediately if they see him.
"Members of the public should not approach Goodwin themselves if they see him.
"He has a distinctive muscular appearance and I understand that he was wearing blue or black jeans, a tee shirt, brown boots and a black jacket when he was last seen.
Detective Inspector Hester continued: "I would also like to make it clear that anyone found to be helping, harbouring, or in any way aiding Dean Goodwin will be arrested."
Anyone who sees Dean Goodwin should dial 999 immediately. Anyone else with other information should call 0800 056 0154 or 0207 158 0011.
