Police in Milton Keynes have released an e-fit image of a man they want to question in connection with an assault on a nine-year-old girl.

At around 12.35pm on Tuesday 15 August the girl was walking on the playing field on Hume Close in the Bradville area when a man grabbed her by the wrist. It is thought he was hiding in a hedgerow.

The girl broke free and raised the alarm.

The man police would like to speak to is in his late teens or early twenties, with dark brown hair which had ginger bits in the middle and was spiky at the back.

He had light blue eyes, a full beard and scabs around his mouth. He was wearing a black and white Adidas tracksuit, a blue Nike t-shirt, and was carrying a black briefcase style bag which had a handle.

He had multiple tattoos, including a red, green and black snake on his arm, small diamonds and stars, people’s names on his wrist and a short black tattoo on his neck. He also had multiple piercings in his ears, a silver hoop in his nose and a tongue piercing.
