Police appeal after girl, 10, says she was touched by man on street

Police are investigating a 'suspicious incident' in which a young girl claims she was approached and touched by a stranger on the street.

Officers are appealing for anyone who may be able to help their inquiry to come forward immediately.

The 10-year-old has said she was walking along Firth View Walk in Workington at about 8am on Monday when a man came up to her and put his arm across her shoulders.

He was described as being in his 30s, around five feet seven inches tall, with hairy arms and of large, fat build.

He was said to have been wearing a white t-shirt with red, horizontal stripes and black cargo pants with pockets on the side of the knees.

The man ran off towards Westfield Bridge Court when the girl screamed, say police.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

The force is also looking into other alleged attempts by strangers to talk to children.
