Police seeking help after teenager approached by unknown man

POLICE have requested the help of Southern River residents after a man attempted to lure a 13 year old girl into his van.

The driver approached the girl between 5.30pm and 6.30pm on Sunday evening at Castlewood Parkway Reserve in Southern River.

The man asked the girl to come in to his van, however the girl refused and started to run to her home.

The driver chased her in his vehicle and again asked her to get into his vehicle and offered her an inducement to do so.

The girl again refused and reached home without further incident.

The police do not know the registration number or the model of the van and have asked for anyone who has CCTV alarms and lives on Castlewood Parkway and Friday Hill Drive to check their footage.
