12 year old girl ‘approached by man in car’ in north-east town


Police are making enquiries after a 12 year old girl was approached by a man in a car in Gourdon.

The incident happened at Brae Road at around 4.40pm on Thursday, 6 April, 2016.

A man approached the girl and asked her if she was ok and needed a lift. She declined and the vehicle drove off before stopping opposite the junction of Brae View where the man got out of the vehicle and looked about.

He walked into Brae View and continued looking before returning to his vehicle and driving further into Gourdon.

The vehicle is described as similar to silver Vauxhall Corsa.

Enquiry officer PC Austin Stevenson said: “At this time there is nothing to suggest that anything untoward has happened here however we would like to trace the man who was driving the car so we can rule that out.

“If you were in the area at the time and saw anything suspicious or unusual we would ask that you contact us on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you wish to remain anonymous.”
