Avon and Somerset Police are appealing to the general public to assist in identifying a suspect who “approached and grabbed” a 12-year-old girl while walking at a nature reserve.
The police, via its Twitter handle, are appealing for witnesses to step forward about the incident in Northern Slopes on Tuesday on Wedmore Vale, Bristol, on Monday morning.
Luckily, the girl managed to escape and run away before telling his father, who informed the police at 11:41 a.m.
DI Clem Goodwin said: “This incident is being fully investigated and we’d like to reassure people living in the area that additional police patrols are being carried out.
“The girl has given a description of the man as being aged between 30 and 40, wearing a black thin jacket and black trousers. He may have been missing a glove.
“If you recognise this man’s description, or have any information which could help the investigation, please call 101 quoting reference 5221027754.”
