Police are investigating a reported child approach in Long Jetty.
In the afternoon of Monday, May 6, two children, aged 7 and 4, were playing at Foreshore Park, Long Jetty, when police have been told that a man approached the older boy before the child walked away.
Then around 1pm on Wednesday, May 8, the same two children and their mother were again at Foreshore Park, when one of the children noticed the man nearby.
At some stage, he approached the children again before fleeing in a southerly direction on Tuggerah Pde, Long Jetty.
He is described as being aged in his 40-50s, of Caucasian appearance, with long, curly brown hair, 172cms tall, with a thin build and grey/brown stubble.
He was last seen wearing a black jumper with a blue/while shirt underneath, blue jeans and no shoes.
The incident has again prompted police to encourage parents to discuss the ‘Safe People, Safe Places’ messages with their children.
