Temporary Detective Superintendent Jes Fry said he was encouraged by the response to media appeals, but was still keen to hear from anyone with information about the incident.
Det Supt Fry said the city would have been busy at the time of the incident and wanted anyone who saw anything – no matter how seemingly insignificant – to contact them as a matter of urgency.
He said: 'We're still waiting to find someone who saw what started this off – that's the key issue.
'It's a case of trying to ask anyone who saw what happened to call us...so we can build a clear picture of what's occurred.' Anyone who witnessed the incident should call police on 101 or call anonymously on 0800 555 111.
