Detective Constable Glen Williams said: "The woman was not injured but was understandably left shaken.
"I would like to appeal to anyone with information about this incident to call us immediately so the person responsible can understand the seriousness of their actions.
"At 4am on a Sunday, Leicester can get quite busy with people starting to leave bars and clubs, so it is likely there were others in the area that would have seen the incident.
"If you know anything about this incident or the person responsible please call us.
"I would like to advise anyone who decides to walk alone late at night or in the early hours of the morning to always be vigilant about their safety and keep to busy well-lit highways where possible."
The suspect was Asian, 24 or 25, about 5ft 6ins, of medium build and had short dark hair.
