Thames Valley Police have confirmed that they have been able to identify the man who's image was circulated yesterday after an assault on a horse rider and he is 'helping with enquiries'.

The force originally shared the image of the man after stating that they believed he had 'vital information' about the assault.

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

A man approached her shouting that she should not be there.

She then 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.

Fortunately, the victim was not injured during this incident.
