Hunt for man who tried to lure females into his car
11:16am Tuesday 4th September 2012 in News
Police are hunting the driver of a red sports car who twice tried to lure girls to get in his vehicle.
The first incident was in Raby Park Road on August 8 when a man driving a red two-door sports car stopped a girl shortly before 5.30pm and asked her if she wanted a lift as he knew her mother.
She declined the lift and made her way home. No attempt was made to force her into the car.
A woman was walking along Liverpool Road, Neston, on the same afternoon when a red sports car again drew up alongside her and the man asked her to get in the car, she refused and then man then asked for directions.
He then drove off towards the town centre.
On both occasions the driver was decribed as a black male and aged about 30.
There had been further suspicious incidents reported later in the month involving a red Ford KA car.
Police have traced and spoken with the user of the Ford KA and are satisfied that no offences have been committed with regards to these incidents and that they are not linked to the man in the red sports car on August 8.
Constable Mike Lockett said: “This type of behaviour is of concern to us and is obviously worrying to the community.
“We have been patrolling the area to provide reassurance and are working tirelessly to identify the car and trace the man.
“If you have any information that could help us to locate the male in the red sports car, please contact us."
Anyone who may help trace this man should contact Neston Neighbourhood Policing Team on 101 quoting incident number 157 of August 23, 2012.
