Police in Sheffield are asking for your help to identify a man who is reported to have verbally abused a child in a park.

At around 5.25pm on Thursday 27 June, it is reported that a 13-year-old girl and a 20-year-old woman were in the park off St Joseph’s Road, Handsworth, when an unknown man approached.

The man is understood to have become verbally abusive and aggressive towards the 13-year-old girl, causing significant distress.
