A knife-wielding man sexually assaulted a girl in Overton Park on Wednesday.

The young man approached a pair of girls and inappropriately touched one of them at about 4pm.

He then approached a group of older boys before leaving the scene.

A passerby spotted the man with the knife and called police but he left the scene before officers arrived.

Anyone who uses the park has been advised to walk in groups.

A 14-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of assault in connection with the incident.

If you have information about the incident, you can call police on 101 or the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

I really do wonder how this 'journalist' holds down a job.
In the first sentence the suspect is a man, in the second he's a 'young man', and in the third he approaches people older than himself who are described as 'boys'.
A year six child could write more consistently than that.
