"I am renewing the appeal for witnesses to this incident to come forward.  We know from our enquiries that a man wearing glasses walked through the alleyway onto Queens Road during the incident and we would very much like to speak to him about what he saw.

If this was you, or if anyone has information about the incident, they are asked to make contact with police as soon as possible. Please call me via the non-emergency number 101."
