The man is described as white, with a shaved head. He was wearing a black parka coat, a blue t-shirt, grey Adidas tracksuit bottoms and black trainers.

The two tattoos are on either arm.

One is described as a blue ink Celtic band-style which wraps his right bicep. The other is a larger tattoo on the outside of his left bicep and is slightly faded blue ink with what appears to be a dragon motif or clawed imagery.
