Two men seen in the area that officers wanted to speak to have now been spoken to by detectives, providing information that has assisted the investigation.
However, officers say they need to speak to people who were walking their dogs in the area of King James’s School, the cemetery and the school playing fields between 9am and 10am on Sunday 5 April.
These dog walkers may also have important information, but have not yet contacted the police.

Detectives also want to speak to two men who were seen separately in the grounds of King James's school where the attack took place on Easter Sunday. The first was seen there between 7am and 7.15am, the second between 9am and 9.15am.

Protesters gather outside County Hall in Northallerton as county councillors prepare to vote on a controversial waste incinerator scheme near Knaresborough.
Councillors in North Yorkshire are set to give the go ahead for an incinerator. That's despite opposition from local residents in Knaresborough and losing government funding.
The facility at Allerton Park would dispose of non-recycled household waste either mechanically, biologically or in a specialist waste plant.
The proposal was agreed in principal in 2010 and was supported by Government funding under a Private Finance Initiative. However, this funding was withdrawn in February 2013.
