Police in East Belfast are appealing for information following a report of a suspicious approach that was made to a 10 year old child in the Calvin Street area of East Belfast at around 3.30pm on Monday 10 November 2014.
Chief Inspector David Moore, Area Commander for East Belfast says: â€œThe young girl was walking along the footpath, when a male who is described as dark skinned and approximately 20-30 years old, attempted to coax her into a vehicle. The girl ran to a place of safety, advised an adult of the incident and they in turn contacted police.
â€œIt is believed that the vehicle was a large blue car with a dark interior, with red stitching. The car was last seen in the Beersbridge Road area. Police conducted searches of the surrounding area and circulated details of the vehicle. Indeed, a specialised police vehicle with automatic number plate recognition was deployed in the area to assist with the investigation.
â€œWe would appeal to anyone who may have been in the area and witnessed this incident or anyone who may have information relating to the incident to contact police on 101.â€
