A man sitting on a bench with a bicycle approached the girl and took hold of her hand. He let go moments later and cycled away towards North End.

We are making a fresh appeal for information now that we have an efit. I would urge anyone who recognises the man in the efit, to come forward and speak to us in confidence.

We are still keen to speak with a woman walking with a small brown dog who was in the park at the time of the incident.
