On 9 November a 12-year-old boy was at the junction of Montgomery Avenue and South Kinson Drive at around 5.30pm when a man got out of a car and approached him.
The man did not say anything and reportedly attempted to grab the boy and put his arms on his shoulders, before the boy was able to run away from the scene.
The man was dressed in black with white lettering on his left leg and also had a balaclava, baseball cap and black rubber gloves on.
The car he got out off is described as dark blue or black with yellow headlights and a roof rack.
