Police warning after child approached

Police are warning the community to be alert after a report of a man approaching a child in Horsley on Tuesday.

About 6.15pm three boys, aged 8, 11 and 12, were playing outside a home on Armitage Avenue, Horsley.

Officers have been told a white 4WD drove past heading north and a man inside waved to the children.

About 15 minutes later, the vehicle returned and stopped beside the 11-year-old before the driver reached out and asked if the boy wanted some lollies.

The boy ran back to the others a short distance away and the man drove off south on Armitage Avenue.

The incident was reported to police and they are appealing to anyone who may have information about it to contact them. This includes anyone who may know the identity of the man or who may have seen the vehicle in the area.
