Police issue artist's impression of man suspected of sexually assaulting a woman in his 'taxi'.
Police have released an artist's impression of a motorist suspected of sexually assaulting a woman after she got into his car because she thought he was a taxi driver.
The woman told police she got into a man's car after she had visited friends in Anstey Lane, Leicester, at 3.20am on Saturday, October 6.
She has told officers she cancelled a private hire taxi she had booked because she thought the man's silver saloon-style car, possibly a VW Passat, was also a taxi.
A short time later, she called police from the Cropston area and told them she had been attacked.

Police released details and appealed for witnesses earlier this month.
Yesterday, they released an artist's impression the victim has helped to create.
Detective Sergeant Neil Holden said: "We have worked closely with the victim to create this artist's impression and believe it to be a good likeness.
"What we want members of the public to do is take a good look at the image. Does this look like anyone you know? Perhaps a friend or work colleague.
"If you feel that person could be involved in this assault you must contact police immediately, it isn't too late to help.
"We have already appealed for information once and we know that there are people out there that want to help us.
"We are continuing to talk to witnesses but would urge anyone who knows about this incident, who hasn't called us before now, to please pick up the phone and get in touch.
"Although incidents like this are extremely rare in Leicester, we are taking this report extremely seriously.
"We have a team of officers working on this investigation and we hope that the public will help us too.
"The smallest piece of information could help us locate this man so I would urge you to call us."
The suspect is black, 30 to 40, 5ft 6ins and has little or no hair.
He is slim and was wearing dark clothing and a thick gold chain.
