Police hunting man who offered children ‘lollies’ in suburban park

Investigations are underway after a man approached two young children while they were playing in a park and offered them lollies.

The pair, aged 10 and 9, were at Riverside Park on Murray Street in Barham when the stranger walked up to them and made the suspicious gesture just after 5.00pm.

The children were so scared that they ran from the man, who then left the park in an unknown direction.
