Two children approached in Prince St, police investigate

POLICE are appealing for information after two children were approached at Grafton yesterday (Tuesday 11 August).

About 2.30pm, a man reportedly approached two children who were seated in a car on Prince St. The man spoke to the children, aged nine and 12, before walking away.

The children told their father when he returned to the vehicle. He then approached the unknown man, but the man got into a car and drove away.

The incident was reported to Grafton Police who are making a number of inquiries.

They would like to speak to a man who they believe may be able to assist with their inquiries. He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged about 60, with a slim build and long grey hair. He may be driving a white Holden Commodore bearing Queensland registration plates.

Make sure your parents or another adult you know knows where you are at all times.

Know where safe places are - a shop, service station, police station, library or school.

Don't talk to people you don't know and never get into a car with someone you don't know.

If a car stops on the side of the road and you don't know the person inside, do not stop.

If you are scared and can use a phone, call 000 and tell them you are scared.

If someone tries to grab you, yell out, 'Go away, I don't know you'.
