“The witness and the victim attended the same school, albeit in different academic years but we would like to be clear that the incidents we are investigating are in no way linked to the school. We appreciate that it has been a long time since the incidents took place, but we are hoping that this individual recognises themselves from the description, and we would ask that they get in touch.”

Information can be reported to police on 101 or via the police website, quoting reference 50001199585.
