States of Jersey Police are appealing for witnesses following reports that an 11-year-old girl was assaulted as she walked home from school yesterday afternoon (Tuesday, 22 November 2011).
The incident is said to have happened in a field behind FCJ School around 4pm yesterday, as the young girl was walking alone on her way from Grainville School towards Grands Vaux. It is reported that the man grabbed the girl by the arm, but that she was able to run off, knocking him to the ground as she fled.
Police have issued an appeal to anyone who may have been in or around the area yesterday afternoon and may have seen the alleged suspect to contact them. He has been described as a man in his 20s, around 6ft tall and wearing black tracksuit bottoms and a black hooded sweatshirt.
Detective Inspector Gary Pashley said: "We would urge anyone who may have witnessed the alleged incident, or may have any information to assist the inquiry, to contact us. In particular, we would also like to hear from a cyclist who may have been in, or close to, the playing field around the time of the incident, and who is described as wearing a helmet, cycling outfit and sunglasses.
Investigating officers are in the area near Grainville School today in an effort to piece together what may have happened yesterday, and to seek any additional information about the incident.
Anyone who may be able to assist the inquiry can contact detectives on (01534) 612612 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111
