Do you recognise this man?

At around 4.30pm on Tuesday 22 October the victim, a 15-year-old girl, was riding her horse through a Captain’s Woods in Chesham.

A man approached her shouting that she shouldn’t be there. The girl apologised and went to leave but the man then hit the back of her horse with a dog lead and took hold of her horse’s reins while continuing to shout. He then grabbed the victim by the leg and tried to pull her off the horse, causing her to lose balance but she did not fall off.

The victim then became aware of another woman walking her dog through the field and the man then ran off.
