POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a 14-year-old girl was assaulted near a Melksham park.

It happened on Sunday 24th June between 2pm and 3pm, near the play park off Riverside Drive.

The girl was playing in the park with her younger sister when she was assaulted by two men. She was not injured, but was left shaken by what happened.

One man is described as white, but with tanned skin, around 6ft 4ins tall, of average build and with short dark brown spiky hair and a narrow face.

He was wearing a long-sleeved white button-up shirt with a collar, baggy grey tracksuit bottoms and black flip flops.

The second man was also white with tanned skin, around 6ft tall, of average build and short brown hair and a long face.

He was wearing a white vest, baggy grey tracksuit bottoms and black flip flops.
