Three girls 'touched by man in pool'
POLICE are appealing for help in catching a man after three young girls were sexually assaulted in Swansea's LC leisure centre.
Officers were called to the popular family attraction on Wednesday evening after reports of an incident in the centre's waterpark.
The LC was in lock-down for a time while police searched the building but the suspect could not be found.
Now officers have released a description of a man they want to talk to in connection with the incident — he is described as having a tanned complexion, being unshaven and having collar-length brown hair.
He was wearing black or blue knee-length board shorts.
Police said the victims — a teenager and two girls under 10 — were in the centre's main pool at around 4.20pm when the incident happened.
South Wales Police acting detective inspector David Butt of Swansea Central CID said: "I would like to thank the staff of the LC for their prompt action in closing the centre, in order for us to search for this man.
"Thankfully none of the victims were injured but these incidents are concerning, and we are treating them very seriously.
"I am appealing to anyone who was in the pool at the relevant time and saw this man or can assist in identifying him to come forward."
He added: "In addition I would also like to thank the users of LC for their patience during the brief closure and apologise for any inconvenience that may have been caused."
In April the LC installed new CCTV cameras and increased staff patrols in a bid to boost visitor safety.
The six additional cameras were switched on just weeks after a 56-year-old man used a mirror to look under a cubicle wall at a naked woman in the changing area.
