At around 5.40pm on Friday 15th December, a 13 year old girl was walking along Aston Road, Queensferry near Asda Supermarket, when she was assaulted by a man.

The teenager had been walking along Aston Road near to Asda Supermarket yesterday evening when she was assaulted by a man.

The girl managed to raise the alarm and the man made off on foot in the direction of Queensferry.

The suspect is described as a white male, around 50 years old, wearing a long black coat and with short dark hair. Based on his accent he is believed to be of Eastern European origin.

The victim was in shock but not seriously hurt, and is being supported by her family and detective officers.

We particularly want to hear from anyone who was waiting at the bus stop directly outside Asda supermarket at the time of the incident.

This kind of incident is rare in North Wales and I would like to reassure the community that we are doing everything we can to identify and apprehend the suspect.

– DS Iolo Edwards, North Wales Police
