Police have issued an appeal for information after a drunk man left a 16-year-old 'distressed' after an encounter in Rosyth on Sunday. 

She was walking on King’s Road at around 6.25pm when an unknown man approached her and attempted to engage her in conversation.

She refused and ran north up King’s Road towards Rosyth train station. The man was seen to leave the area in the direction of Park Road.

The teenager was uninjured and officers are urging anyone who recognises the man to come forward.

He is described as a white, aged in his thirties, around 5ft 8ins tall and appeared dishevelled. He was wearing a long black puffa jacket that reached his knees and had on a black baseball cap with the black letters ‘NYC’ on the front. He was described as speaking with a local accent.

Inspector Stephen Kay, from Dalgety Bay Police Station, said: “Our inquiries are ongoing into the full circumstances as we work to establish any criminality involved in this incident, which left the teenager understandably distressed.

“The man appeared heavily intoxicated and was unsteady on his feet. We’d urge anyone who saw a man matching the above description, or can help us identify him, to come forward and assist our inquiries.”

Anyone with information should call Police Scotland on 101 and quote incident number 3330 of 17 March.
