Det Insp Janice Pearson, from Bath CID, said: "We are appealing for witnesses or for anyone who saw the man running away.
"He is described as southern European with light tanned skin, clean shaven, 5ft 8-9ins tall and of medium build.
"He is in his 40s with short cropped straight dark hair going grey on the sides, balding on the crown, with the front and side of his hair pushed back as if he is hiding a bald patch. He has a big forehead, black bushy eyebrows and a round shaped face.
"He was wearing a round neck jumper which was mottled dark grey with white flecks, thick material, white underneath giving the appearance of a white t-shirt without a collar, casual slightly baggy grey/blue trousers and dark coloured daps with white trim around the soles."
She added: "I would like to remind people, particularly during this party season, to take care when they are out. They should consider how much they are drinking and they should make plans to get home safely, and where possible should not walk home alone at night."
Anyone with any information is asked to call Bath CID on 101.
