The victim was a 16-year-old boy who was approached by a man in an alleyway between Parry Drive and Cloes Lane around 10.30am on September 24.

He is also described as having short curly hair and a black beard or moustache.

He was also wearing a dark-coloured, baggy tracksuit and a dark blue hooded top with the hood up.

Officers are particularly keen to speak to a man who may have witnessed the incident.

He is described as white, aged 60 to 80-years-old, wearing glasses and a striped t-shirt.
