He tried to speak to the girl, but she ignored him and continued to walk on. The man then grabbed her wrist and pulled her into some nearby bushes, where he exposed himself. The man made sexual comments and tried to force himself upon the girl, who then managed to run away.

The offender is described as a white man, in his 20s, with blonde short spiked hair, dark coloured eyebrows and a stubble. He was wearing skinny-fit light blue jeans and a grey hooded top.

Call police with information on 101.
