The man is described as white, in his 60s and with a bald head.

A vehicle, described as an old red car with cream stripe down the side, stopped next to a boy on a bike.
The car driver, described as a white man, elderly, of slim build, with a shaved head and wearing a grey jumper with a diamond pattern on the chest and blue jeans, asked the boy where he was going.
