A woman has described the moment a car wash worker sexually assaulted her in an Asda car park.

42-year-old Sarah Barnes waived her right to anonymity to bravely tell how Azad Hassan attacked and to encourage other victims of such assault to come forward.

Hassan, 43, groped Sarah, from Cardiff, Wales, in July when she visited the car wash at Pentwyn Asda.

She was left feeling 'angry' and 'frustrated' but wanted to come forward to tell other victims they have 'nothing to be ashamed of'.

On August 30, Hassan admitted the assault at Cardiff Magistrates' Court where received a community order and was ordered to sign the Sex Offenders' Register for five years.

Sarah told Wales Online: "I drove into the car wash and Hassan, who was serving me, told me to pull my car around the other side, separating me from the other person who was working there."

"It was at that point he leant into the car and touched my breast, had a good squeeze of it, and said 'Nice'."

"I didn't react at all, I ignored the whole thing because I was in a state of shock, you don't think that anyone is going to do that."

"He then touched my leg and was stroking it, saying 'You've got a dog there on you'. I leant over to get cash out and as I got out the car he touched my breast again."

Sarah didn't know what to do, so went into Asda and told an employee what had happened.

She continued: "I spoke to one of the managers there and she was just lovely. She sorted out the whole thing and told me what I needed to do."

"I wasn't in the right frame of mind, I couldn't believe it had just happened. I felt angry and frustrated."

"The police were brilliant, they were amazing."

"I was the one kind of downgrading it because it wasn't an intrusive sexual assault but the police woman assured me and said he didn't have the right to do it. They were really good."
