According to Gloucestershire Constabulary: “The man got close to the girl and made sexual comments and gestures towards her.

The man is described as being aged between 40 and 50 years old, around 5ft 7ins tall, white, had dark stubble, was of a slim build and spoke with a strong, non-local accent. He also wore a baseball cap and black trousers.
