We have spoken to a significant number of people who were in the area at the time and secured footage which we believe will help to progress the investigation.
We are now asking for witnesses or anyone with doorbell footage showing the incident who have not yet come forward to speak to us to do so as soon as possible.
Anyone with information should call 101 and cite incident 627 of December 28.
