A stranger who ran up to a woman in the street and repeatedly tried to kiss her is being sought by police.

The victim, who was alone at the time, was left shaken after the incident, which happened at 8.30pm on Tuesday, May 27, outside Simply Baby on North Road.

“The suspect is described as white, about 30 years old, and wearing a black t-shirt and blue jeans.”
