Police have arrested a man in connection with a series of suspicious approaches to children in the Kilcooley and Clanmorris areas of Bangor during February and March.

The 39-year-old man is being questioned at Bangor Station.

On Wednesday police said they were investigating reports of two young girls being approached by a man who asked them to go into an entryway with him to keep watch while he went to the toilet.

The children refused and neither child was physically touched during the incident.

Police said that they were investigating a link between that incident and similar incidents towards the end of February in the Kilocooley estate area in which a number of young children were approached.
