A school has warned parents after ‘another’ attack in woods used by children.

The community in Great Missenden has been left concerned after reports of attacks on a popular footpath through the woodland between the village and Prestwood.

Reports of a second attack come after the first incident on August 24 when a man approached a woman on the footpath off Trafford Lane before trying to grab her and place his hand over her mouth.

Thames Valley Police launched a witness appeal following the terrifying assault with a detailed description of the offender.

He was described as a hooded white man in his late twenties to mid-thirties with shoulder length, light brown hair and a long beard tied near the bottom.

A woman who usually walks her dogs in the woods and the fields told the Free Presss she has not been there “for weeks now” over fear of another attack.

She said her daughter is “terrified and reluctant” to leave the house except to go to school.

The woman also claimed there were reports of a naked man in the woods in The Lee.

Now The Misbourne School in Great Missenden has warned parents in a letter after a second alleged attack in the area on Thursday September 28.

The school’s headteacher Rich Peters wrote in a letter: “Please be aware that we have been informed by Thames Valley Police of another incident that occurred in the woodland between Prestwood and Great Missenden yesterday (which is often used as a commuting route by students).

“We have today re-iterated our advice to students to always walk in pairs or small groups, and use Martinsend Lane rather than walking through the woods. If your child walks to and from school, please would you also emphasise this message to them.”

Thames Valley Police said there was no update with regards to the assault on August 24.
