Police probe report of ‘suspicious approach’ to children in Bangor

Police are investigating the report of a suspicious approach to two children in the Clanmorris Close area of Bangor, Co Down on Wednesday.

Two young girls were 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.

Detective Inspector Harry Colgan said: "The man was described as being aged in his early 20s, of medium build, around 5’10” tall with brown scruffy sideburns.

"He was wearing a baggy black hooded top with the hood up, baggy black tracksuit bottoms and a peaked cap which was possibly grey or white in colour."

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

Detective Colgan added: "We are keen to identify this man immediately and I would appeal to anyone who noticed a man matching this description in the Clanmorris Close area today or anyone who has any information which could assist us with our enquiries to contact detectives in Bangor on 101. Information can also be given anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
