Police Investigating Child Approach at Charlestown

Investigations are underway after a young girl was approached at a Charlestown shopping centre last week.

The 13-year-old was shopping with friends at about 2:30pm on Sunday June 10, when a man grabbed her arm as she neared an escalator.

He appeared to be ‘agitated’ and ‘aggressive.’

The group managed to get away, but the man followed them for a short time before security was called.

Police are now looking to speak with a man who’s described as being Caucasian, with a solid build, greying dark hair and aged in his mid-40s.

He was last seen wearing a green-checkered flannel shirt, with long shorts and boots.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
