Essex police have issued a new image in a renewed appeal to find a man who indecently assaulted a girl at a school in Felsted.

DI Terri Hooke said: "The new image is photo-like and will hopefully allow members of the public to associate it as a real person as someone they know or recognise.

"The incident occurred shortly before 11am on Tuesday, January 8 following reports that a man had approached a girl at a school at Braintree Road in Felsted and threatened her with violence.

The schoolgirl managed to escape and ran off before alerting a teacher.

The man was white, had crooked teeth, was aged about 30, about 5ft 10in tall and had short, dark brown hair which was gelled up. At the time, he was wearing jeans, a blue hoodie with white tassels and trainers.

Anyone with information is urged to contact detectives at Shrub End on 101.
