“Anyone who may have seen suspicious behaviour in the area late last Friday night, or who has any information which could be relevant, is urged to come forward.
“This was a very distressing incident for the woman and we understand the concern this has caused to the local community. High visibility patrols remain in place in the local area and anyone with concerns or information can also speak to these officers."
