A six-year old girl was allegedly assaulted near a Dundee school on Friday morning.
Police officers are appealing for information about the incident, which happened at about 9am this morning on Lothian Crescent, close to Ballumbie Primary School.
Officers believe there are several potential witnesses and are keen to trace a female dog walker who was on the street at the time and may have seen what took place.
The woman is described as being aged between 50 and 70 years old and having wavy or curly hair. She had a medium sized dog.
Detective Constable David Scott of the Child Protection Investigations Unit said: “The young girl was not injured in any way, however this has understandably been an upsetting incident for her, and a thorough investigation to establish the full set of circumstances is ongoing.
“Incidents of this type are rare and there is not believed to be any wider risk to the public. We are appealing to anyone who was in the area around the time and who witnessed the incident, and in particular the female we have described to contact us.”
