Investigations underway after 8yo boy approached, offered lift home by unknown man

Police are investigating a report of a child approach at Gorokan.

About 3.15pm Tuesday 6 October 2015, an eight-year-old boy was standing on the footpath of Suncrest Parade.

He has told police an older-model, white, two-door vehicle parked a short distance away.


A man not known to the boy approached and asked if he could give the child a lift home.

The boy said no, and started walking away from the man.

The man returned to the car and drove away; it was last seen turning onto Gilbert Avenue.

Police from Tuggerah Lakes Local Area Command are investigating the incident.

They would like to speak with a man who may be able to help with their inquiries.

The man is described as being 40 to 50 years old, 180 to 185cm tall, with an olive complexion, dark hair and a black goatee-style beard.
