Police are appealing for help in tracing a man who kissed a 13-year-old girl on the lips in Corby town centre.

Sometime between 7.40pm and 8.05pm on Monday, two girls, one aged 13, the other 12, were at the junction of Turner Road and Anne Street, when a man stood on the other side of the street called them over to him.

Once the girls had approached him, the man reached out to the 13-year-old and pulled her towards him and kissed her on the lips.

The girl pulled away and the two girls ran off.

The offender was an Asian man, in his early 20s, about 5ft 8in, of medium build and with dark coloured hair.

He wore a black t-shirt which had a white pattern or writing on the front, dark coloured jeans and white trainers. He spoke with a foreign accent.

Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed this incident or who may have any information regarding it.

They would particularly like to speak to a man who was wearing a red t-shirt, who is believed to have witnessed the incident and spoke to the girls after it.

Anyone with information about the assault can call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
