Officers are now hoping witnesses and anyone with information about both the incident and the identity of the teenager will come forward.

The victim, a woman in her 20s, contacted the police after being followed by a man or boy as she walked along Beacon Road, heading to Rinsey, last Thursday at around 4.30pm. The man or boy ,who was riding a bicycle, then attempted to assault her.

A police spokesperson said: "The offender is believed to be a teenager and is described as wearing a black motorbike helmet and a snood covering his face. He is also described as wearing dark camo trousers and had dark eyebrows."

Officers are also investigating a possible link between this offence and an exposure in the area involving a young male offender who was walking a dog, thought to be a Collie.
