TWO women were targeted in sexual assaults which happened in the same bar on one night.

Both happened in Illusions nightclub, on Holmeside in Sunderland.

At 2.30am, a 36-year-old woman was approached by a man who unzipped the front of her dress.

He is described as Asian, 5ft 4ins tall, aged between 23 and 28, with a skinhead and of large build.

A further incident was reported at 2.50am where a man put his hand up a 23-year-old woman’s skirt.

The man is described as Asian, in his late 20s, 5ft 9ins tall, of skinny build, with stubble.

He was wearing a black waist length jacket with the zip half way down and was holding a black mobile phone.

Police believe it was a different man involved but that the two may be linked, with both happening on Saturday, November 1.

Inquiries are continuing and police are keen to speak to anyone who was in the club at the time and may have witnessed the incidents or who may recognise the men from their descriptions.
