“Uniformed officers have been giving particular attention to the area and I would urge people using the park to be on their guard.

“These type of incidents are extremely rare in the area - and the city generally - however by no means should that make anyone complacent.

“I would urge anyone who recognises the description of this male or the E-fit image to make contact with the Police and pass on their details. It may be that you know someone who once had the jacket but doesn’t anymore.

“Anyone who recognises the description of the male provided and can assist with the investigation should contact Police on 101 with information, or the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if you would prefer to remain anonymous.”
