Police are releasing an e-fit image of a man we would like to speak to following a suspicious incident at Cams Alders Recreation Ground in Fareham.

At about 7pm on Monday 7 August two boys, aged 10 and 11, were building a den in the recreation ground. They were followed by a man they did not know and both ran off. A short time later, one of the boys returned to the area and has told police that he was approached by the same man who grabbed him by the top of his arms. The boy was not hurt and ran home.

We are trying to trace the man described by one of the children to establish exactly what happened. He is described as:

White
Aged in his late 40s
Between 5ft10ins and 6ft tall
Average build
Having blue eyes
Having short black hair, which was balding in the middle
Wearing a red Manchester United football shirt, blue denim jeans, and black boots.
Members of the Neighbourhood Policing Team have been regularly patrolling the area and carrying out enquiries to establish the identity of this man. No other similar reports have been received in the area.
