The 36-year-old man died at the scene

Police in Inverness are investigating a second suspicious incident involving a school child being approached in the area in two weeks.

Officers say that an unknown man made “fleeting contact” from a stationary car with a girl in Union Road in the Crown area of the city on Monday afternoon.

Investigating officers say that they are treating the incident as “possible suspicious activity”.

It is understood that the child is a pupil at nearby Crown Primary.

Two men were in the distinctive stationary car, which is described as a white, four door vehicle.

It has a distinctive decor, with red writing and a red and white checkerboard livery.

The two men are described as having a tanned complexion and of similar appearance.

The incident happened at around 3.05pm, and police were informed at around 6.20pm on Tuesday.

A force spokesman said: “Police Scotland would seek to reassure the public that extensive inquiries have been carried out into the matter and these remain ongoing at this time.

“Police would like to speak to the men and would also appeal to anyone who may have any information relevant to the inquiry, to contact the police on 101 or via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where the information can be given anonymously.”

The incident follows an alert last week when a Drakies Primary pupil was approached by a man, believed to be in his 30s, while walking home from school on a path between Drumossie Avenue and MacKenzie Park Gardens.

Police became involved after the pupil’s parent contacted the school to warn them about the incident.

Officers are continuing their investigation into this incident.
