Detectives have released an efit of a man they would like to speak following an indecent assault on a student.

Police were called just before 11am on Tuesday with reports that a man had approached a girl at a school in Braintree Road, Felsted and threatened her with violence.

The school girl managed to escape his presence and ran off before alerting a teacher.

Senior Investigating Officer, DCI Simon Werrett said: "This man’s description is very detailed and distinctive in several ways. I am sure someone will recognise him from this efit. If you know this man then please contact my detectives.

Also, if you were in the area of the school between 10:30am and 11:30am on Tuesday morning and saw a man matching the physical or clothing description given, please contact us.”

The man is described as white, with crooked teeth, aged approximately 30, approximately 5ft 10ins tall and has short, dark brown hair which was gelled up. At the time, he was wearing jeans, a blue hoodie with white tassels, and trainers.

Anyone with information in connection with this assault is urged to contact detectives at Shrub End (North SOIT Office) on 101 or email
