He was between 5ft 3ins and 5ft 4ins tall, with short black shaven hair, a thin face and thick eyelashes.

He was wearing a red flat peak cap with a gold swirl on the front, a baggy jacket, very baggy jeans and chunky white trainers.

Anyone who recognises the man or has information about the assault should call Pc Andy MacAlister on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
