“The victim, who is now a teenager, showed incredible bravery in coming forward in April of this year,” said PC Bill Skinner.
Because of the traumatic nature of sexual offenses, it may take victims some time to report the crime to the authorities. We are aware of this fact and fully comprehend it.
“It doesn’t matter if it happened three minutes ago or three years ago; we’re going to make sure victims get the support they need, and we’re going to investigate everything thoroughly.
“We are eager to hear from anyone who recognizes the man depicted in this image, as well as anyone who was in the area around the time of the incident and who may remember seeing anyone acting suspiciously,” the police said in a statement.
