Friday, January 10, 2020

Police are appealing for information after a schoolgirl reported being approached by a man in Guiseley.

The 10-year-old girl had been walking home from school at about 3.30pm yesterday (9/1) and was in Park Road, near to its junction with Bradford Road, when a man in a vehicle that was queuing with other cars at traffic lights spoke to her and asked her to get in.

The girl ran off and the man drove away as the lights turned green.

The vehicle involved was described as dark coloured and possibly a pick-up style truck. The man was described as white, with short dark hair, and was wearing a grey t-shirt.

Detective Inspector James Entwistle, of Leeds District CID, said: “We are carrying out enquiries to identify the man involved and would like to hear from anyone who was in the area and saw anything, particularly any other drivers who may have dashcam footage that could assist us.

“We recognise that an incident such as this will cause understandable concern in the community and we are liaising closely with our colleagues on the local neighbourhood policing team who are working to reassure people and are linking with schools in the area.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Leeds District CID via 101 quoting crime reference 13200014992 or online via www.westyorkshire.police.uk/101livechat
