He is described as an Asian male who is about 20 years old.

Inspector Lee Bargawanath said: “We are conducting a comprehensive investigation into the incident since it was reported and are now in a position to issue an e-fit of the person with whom we wish to speak.

“Due to the nature of the incident, this case was registered as a sex offense and we are talking to the victims and their parents.

“I would ask anyone who recognizes the person in the picture or who has any information about what happened to contact us.

“You may have an important piece of information that will enable us to identify this culprit.”

He said he believed the August 14 attack near the city’s Scofield Bridge was a single incident, and that no others were reported.

Anyone who identifies the person in the photos, or has any information, is being asked to contact West Yorkshire Police.
