He may have a dark-coloured beard or facial hair and is described as wearing glasses, a dark-coloured baseball cap or light-coloured headwear similar to a prayer hat.

He was in possession of a dark coloured rucksack and is thought to have a foreign accent.

Det Sgt Nicola Burnett, of Strathclyde Police, said: "We are extremely anxious to trace this man in connection with the investigation.

"This incident involved children under the age of 10 years. We have increased police patrols in the area and would like the opportunity to remind parents and carers to be aware of the whereabouts of their children, especially in this period of good weather."
