Police officers have arrested a man suspected of indecently assaulting a 14-year-old girl in Bonnybridge.

The girl was walking with her two friends along Bonnybridge Toll, near Lade Road, just after noon on Thursday, June 25, when the incident took place. The girls passed a man going in the opposite direction.

A short time later the girls became aware of the same man running back towards them, when he attempted to take hold of the 14 year old girl. The girls ran off and the man was seen running off in the direction of Ford Road/Peathill Terrace.

Officers arrested and charged a 34-year-old man in connection with the indecent assault and he is due to appear at Falkirk Sheriff Court today.

Anyone with any information on this incident should contact police on 101.
