Essex Police said on Monday that the two girls involved in the incident were “shaken up” by the encounter with a man they believe to have been “intoxicated”. The force said the two girls had been walking together in Colchester, when the man – who had been lying on the floor – stood up and assaulted them.

They said he grabbed one on the shoulder and the other by the wrist.

“Thankfully, both girls managed to pull away and run away,” the police said.

The incident took place on Magdalen Street at around 6pm on Monday, October 25.

The man in question was described as white, around six foot tall and wearing a rainbow-coloured t-shirt, with black tracksuit bottoms and trainers.

The man fled towards Hythe Hill following the incident, police said.

PC Nathan O’Sullivan said: “Thankfully, neither victim was injured during this incident but both girls were understandably shaken up as a result of it.

“I would like to locate the man described and I would appeal to anyone who recognises the description to come forward and speak to us.

“We believe the man involved may have been intoxicated at the time.”
