Police Officers investigating an alleged sexual offence in Cromford would like to thank the public for the response to their appeal and offer reassurance.

The incident happened at around 12.45pm on Thursday, July 4 on the High Peak Train, near to the High Peak Visitors Centre at the Cromford Canal on Lea Road.

A 48 year old woman reported that she had noticed a man near to a tree who had been masturbating. The man was described as being aged in his 40s or 50s, and was wearing a white t-shirt. His face was allegedly covered by a pillow case or a hooded top.

Officers from the local Safer Neighbourhood policing team put an appeal out on their Facebook page, which has reached more than 55,000 people, but they would still like to hear from anyone who may have any information that has not yet contacted us.

The team is also carrying out patrols of the trail to help reassure the local community.

If you noticed anything suspicious or have any information which could help police with heir inquiries please get in touch using one of the following non-emergency contact methods.

Please quote the reference number 19*348421 and name of the officer in the case, PC Adam McGovern, in any correspondence.

You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Please note in the event of an emergency you should always call 999.
