Image released - Seaton Park incidents, Aberdeen

Published 29 November 2016

An e-fit of a man officers would like to trace in relation to incidents at Seaton Park in Aberdeen.

Officers in Aberdeen are continuing to investigate reports of a male behaving inappropriately towards females in Seaton Park, Aberdeen, and have released an E-fit image of a male they are keen to trace.

Police Scotland has received three separate reports of a male approaching and assaulting three females at Seaton Park near to the Hillhead Halls of Residence during September to November.

All occurred on or near steps next to the site between 4.30pm and 5.30pm, and officers believe the incidents are linked.

The man Police would like to speak with is described as white, between the ages of 17 and 20, around 5ft7-9 in height with short light brown or blonde hair. He is described as wearing dark sportswear including a hooded top and jogging bottoms, and is believed to have a local accent.

Detective Constable Kirsty Munro said: "I would like to reassure the community that officers are taking these reports very seriously. Although none of the females involved were hurt or injured in any way, they were left feeling understandably concerned and uncomfortable.

"Uniformed officers have been giving particular attention to the area and I would urge people using the park to be on their guard. These type of incidents are extremely rare in the area - and the city generally - however by no means should that make anyone complacent.

"I would urge anyone who recognises the description of this male or the E-fit image to make contact with the Police and pass on their details. It may be that you know someone who once had the jacket but doesn't anymore.

"Anyone who recognises the description of the male provided and can assist with the investigation should contact Police on 101 with information, or the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if you would prefer to remain anonymous."
