Police are appealing for information after a 15-year-old girl was sexually assaulted while playing with friends in a park off Falcon Avenue, Springfield.

At around 8pm on Monday, she was approached by three boys. One, of either Asian or Somalian ethnicity is said to have “hugged the victim before kissing her and placing his hands up her top”.

The victim’s friends pulled the girl away from the boy before running from the scene.

The offender is described as in his late teens, 5ft 7in tall, with spiky hair and of skinny build.

He was wearing a round silver stud with small stones in his left ear, long sleeved checked white, red and burgundy shirt, baggy denim jeans with rear pockets with a ‘V’ logo, black Adidas trainers and a gold watch with the logo ‘DG’.

Anyone with information relating to the incident is asked to contact Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
