Police are appealing for witnesses after a teenager was allegedly approached by drunk man in Fife.
A 16-year-old woman was walking on King’s Road in Rosyth at around about 6.25pm on Sunday when a male tried to engage her in conversation.
The teenager refused to reply and ran north up King’s Road towards the town’s train station.
The man, who had a local accent, was seen to leave the area in the direction of Park Road.
The woman was left shaken but uninjured following the alleged incident and the police were contacted.
Officers are now conducting enquiries to establish if there was any criminality involved.
The male is described as being white, in his thirties and around 5ft 8in tall. He appeared dishevelled and was wearing a long black puffa jacket that reached his knees.
He was also wearing a black baseball cap with NYC lettering on the front.
Local Inspector Stephen Kay from Dalgety Bay Police Station said: “Our inquiries are ongoing into the full circumstances as we work to establish any criminality involved in this incident which left the teenager understandably distressed.
“The man appeared heavily intoxicated and was unsteady on his feet.
“We’d urge anyone who saw a man matching the above description, or can help us identify him, to come forward and assist our inquiries.”
Anyone with information should call Police Scotland on 101 and quote incident number 3330 of 17 March.
