He was wearing a navy blue body-warmer with a white logo, a dark long-sleeved T-shirt, dark combat trousers and dark trainers.

A Kent police spokeswoman said: "It was reported that the man attempted to speak to a woman and when she refused to engage with him he tried to grab her. The woman avoided the man and left the area."

The alleged attack happened shortly before 8pm on Monday, May 2, along a footpath off Church Hill, Kingsnorth.

The woman says she was walking along the footpath when she was approached by the man.

Anyone who recognises him, or who has information which may help the investigation, should call Kent Police on 01843 222289, quoting reference 46/83178/22.
