A YOUNG woman was left badly shaken after a man grabbed her round the neck and tried to indecently assault her.

The 23-year-old was attacked in Laurel Avenue, Gravesend, after getting out of a taxi in Echo Square just after midnight.

The attacker grabbed the Gravesend woman from behind, put a hand over her mouth and attempted to indecently assault her.

She managed to struggle free and scream for help.

It is thought she attracted the attention of residents and the man fled.

Anyone who saw the incident on Saturday, November 24, should call Det Con Jan Metherell on 01474 565167 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.Nearly all the images recovered were said to be of prepubescent children and babies. In Britain, 10 people were either arrested or had computer equipment taken by police.

The operation, the world's largest ever police collaboration, is the result of a 10-month investigation by the crime squad, which was set up in 1998 to investigate serious and organised crime in the UK and abroad.
