He spoke to the woman and walked along Delamere Street with her before pushing and assaulting her.
The victim managed to fight off the man and scratched his face before calling police.
She did not sustain any injuries.
The man is described as white, around 5’5” tall, of heavy build with short dark spikey hair. At the time he was wearing a white t-shirt, a dark coloured jacket and jeans.
Officers are now appealing to anyone with information to come forward.
Detective Constable Jayne Lloyd said: “I know that this assault will cause concern in the community but I can assure the public that we are doing all we can to find the man responsible.
“I would like to praise the victim for her strength in coming forward and informing police at the earliest opportunity.
“Patrols have been stepped up in the area and I would ask anyone who has any concerns to approach an officer.
“We have a number of lines of enquiry ongoing and as part of these I am keen to hear from anyone who may have been in the area around the time of the incident and has seen something which didn’t look quite right.
“The same goes to anyone who may have footage, dashcam or CCTV, in the area that they may not have provided to officers yet to please do so.
“Any information will support our investigation and bring the suspect to justice.”
