Police investigating the assault of a teenage girl in Gwynedd have released an e-fit of the suspect.

The girl was attacked in Criccieth last Sunday as she walked along on Lon Ednyfed in Criccieth at about 1500 BST.

The man made off from the scene in the direction of the town, leaving the girl with minor injuries.

He is described as white, with a fair complexion, about 5ft 7ins (1.7m) tall, balding with a shaved head and aged between his early 30 and early 40s.

The attacker was wearing a light-coloured t-shirt, possibly white or yellow, three-quarters length sandy brown trousers and white shoes.

However, police said immediately before the incident it is believed he was seen without a shirt on.

People with information or witnesses who saw a man acting suspiciously in the area of the town cemetery, are urged to contact detectives in Porthmadog on 101.

Alternatively text 66767 or call Crimestoppers Wales anonymously on 0800 555111.

A 43-year-old man arrested in connection with the incident has been released without charge, said police.
