Detectives investigating a report of an assault in Larkfield, Kent, have released this computer generated image of a man they would like to speak to.

The incident occurred on December 13th at around 6.40pm, in an alleyway off Heron Road.

A 14 year-old girl reported that a man grabbed her as she was walking home. The girl shouted and the suspect let go and ran off in the direction of Lunsford Lane.

The girl was not physically hurt.

The suspect is described as around 55 years old with white hair and a white beard, and wearing a black woolly hat, with a white fringe sticking out from under it.

Ch Insp Jon Kirby said: "The victim was left shaken but has been able to provide us with a good description of the suspect and helped us produce a computer generated image. We have assigned additional officers to the area, both in uniform and in plain clothes to try and identify him.

"If anyone has any information, or recognises the man, I would urge them to call us.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Kent Police by calling 101, quoting crime reference YY/23106/12. Alternatively, contact Kent Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
