Detectives from Epping Sexual Offence and Child Abuse Investigation Team are investigating an indecent assault on a teenage girl in Reservoir last week.
A 15-year-old Reservoir girl was walking to school when she was approached by an unknown man at the rear of Summerhill Shopping Centre about 8.30am on Tuesday August 22.
The man was walking ahead of her in the same direction as they entered the shopping centre from Outlon Crescent. He then turned around to walk past the teen girl, and as they passed he attempted to indecently assault her and made an inappropriate comment. The girl pushed the man’s hand away and he fled the scene.
Police have released CCTV footage of a man that they believe may be able to assist with their investigation.
He is perceived to be of Indian sub-continental appearance, aged in his 20s, and was wearing a fluoro-orange high visibility jumper, navy blue work pants, black boots and a black baseball cap.
