The incident happened at around 3pm in the Bangor Aurora Aquatic & Leisure Complex on August 15.

PSNI Bangor said the woman was in a communal changing area with her two sons when one of the boys noticed that a mobile phone was being held over the side of a cubicle.

The boy alerted his mother to this and she challenged the male holding the phone.

He then fled the building before staff could intervene.

The man is described as aged between 20 and 30 with swarthy skin, heavy dark stubble and short jet black hair.

He is around five ft eight inches tall, and at the time was wearing red shorts with a darker red stripe up the sides, a grey T-shirt with a logo on the left side and Adidas trainers.

The phone was described as purple and from the maker Samsung.

Constable Adrian Bell said: "Police want to speak to this man and anyone who recognises this description is asked to contact police in Bangor on 101 or if someone would like to pass information anonymously they can call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."

Gordon Pennock, the contract manager for the Northern Community Leisure Trust, which manages the Bangor facility, said they were aware of the alleged incident.
