COPS are hunting a predator who targeted a teenage girl in a "deeply concerning" sex attack.

Detectives have today released CCTV of a man they're urgently trying to identify after the youngster was assaulted in Bristol.

The victim was attacked in the early hours of the morning on Sunday, July 4 in the Bedminster area.

The suspect approached her in Harbourside – and police say he's believed to be using the nickname 'Mo'.

Officers are searching for a man who is thought to be of mixed race, 'portly build', and around 5ft 8ins to 5ft 9ins tall.

He had dark facial hair and was wearing blue jeans, a dark jacket and a baseball cap.
