Police in Clacton are asking the public to help them identify a man wanted in connection with an offence of sexual touching of a teenage girl.
On Saturday two teenage girls were walking along St Osyth Road near to Lake Walk in Clacton when they were approached by a man.
He has been described at white, about 5ft 5-6ins tall, aged 30-40, with slightly tanned skin, a spotty complexion and stubble down the side of his cheeks and under his chin.
He had short scruffy brown hair, possibly had an ear piercing in one ear and was wearing a black and brown shirt that had torn holes in the back, black/grey tracksuit bottoms in a shiny material, with a lion motif on the side (possibly Puma or Lonsdale). When he walked he slightly leaned to one side.
As they are walking towards town, he asked them where the fishing lake was. The girls said they didn’t know so he walked off down Lake Walk.

About two hours later, around 4pm, as the girls were walking up St Osyth Road towards the traffic lights at Coppins Road/Rush Green Road they were approached by the same man who again tried to engage them in conversation.
He made inappropriate comments to them and as they tried to walk away from him he grabbed at one of the girls and indecently assaulted her.
