Do you recognise this woman?

Essex Police is currently investigating an isolated incident at Lakeside Shopping Centre in which a woman approached a girl and is reported to have stroked her head and pinched her cheek.

The girl was with her family when the incident happened just after 1.15pm on Saturday, February 23, 2013.

It is possible the woman was just being over-familiar but officers are treating the incident as an alleged common assault and would like to speak to the woman. An Efit image is being issued to help trace the woman concerned.

She is described as being of Asian appearance and aged between 20 and 40. She has long black hair and was wearing a beige coat and red scarf.

Anyone with information is asked to call Essex Police on 101.

Essex Police has no information about any on-going criminal gang activity at Lakeside and is continuing to work closely with security staff at Lakeside to ensure a safe environment for visitors.
