Detectives have released an e-fit of a man they would like to speak with after a two-year-old girl was grabbed in an Enfield park.

Detectives have released the image and continue to appeal to the public for information.

The incident happened at approximately 4.30pm on Thursday, 17 March in a playground near Albany Park.

The girl was in the playground when she was approached by a man who grabbed her arm.

The girl's mother challenged the man who then ran away from the scene.

The suspect is described as a black, aged in his late 20s and of medium build.

He was wearing an Adidas hooded top, black trousers, dark coloured shoes and was carrying a black bag.

Thankfully the child was not hurt during this incident but both her, and her mother, were very shaken up by the experience. The motivation for the incident remains unclear but I would ask anyone who was in the park, or knows who is responsible, to contact police.
