Lewd act witnessed in park

A MAN performed a lewd act near an eight-year-old girl in a secluded part of Earlsheaton Park.

He was seen and made comments towards witnesses before continuing his actions.

It happened on an isolated wooden path in the park between 6.45pm and 7pm on May 17.

The girl was walking with two adults when they spotted the man – who had a cobweb tattoo under his right eye.

He is white, aged 40 to 50, about 5ft 9ins tall, skinny and had dark brown hair in a ponytail.

PC Rosaleen Hird, of Dewsbury and Mirfield NPT, said: “The victim has been able to provide a detailed description of the man involved.

“We would urge anyone who believes they know the identity of this man to please contact us immediately.

“Similarly, we are keen to speak to anyone else who was in the park area who recalls seeing this man.”

Anyone with information can call PC Hird at the Dewsbury and Mirfield NPT on 101.
