E-fit of man officers want to speak to

It was reported that the man attempted to speak to the woman and, when she refused to engage with him, he tried to grab her. The woman avoided the man and left the area.


The suspect is described as being in his early 20s, around five feet, four inches tall, of slim build and with dark hair, cut short at the sides.

He was wearing a navy blue body warmer with a white logo, a dark long-sleeved T-shirt, dark combat trousers and dark trainers.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing and officers have produced a computer-generated image of a man they wish to speak to.

Anyone who recognises the man, or who has any information which may assist the investigation, is urged to call Kent Police on 01843 222289, quoting reference 46/83178/22.
