Police release images of man wanted over attempted abductions in Qld

Police are continuing to appeal for public assistance after a 13-year-old girl was approached by a man in a vehicle while walking to school at Roma on November 30.

Between 7am and 8am the girl was walking to school when she was approached by a man in a white 4WD on Borland Street.

The man reportedly asked the girl to get into the vehicle, telling her that her parents had sent him to pick her up.


The girl refused and the man left the scene in a vehicle described as being a white SUV.

On the same day the girl was approached, a 25-year-old woman was walking at around 12.45pm on Duke Street and McDowall Street, Roma.

She was approached by a man in a white hatchback who asked if she needed a lift.

On December 3, a suspicious incident occurred at a school in Jandowae.

At around 12.20pm, a seven-year-old boy was returning to class when a man outside the school tried to entice him with chocolate to approach him.

The boy ran to class and informed his teacher about the incident.

Both children and the woman who were approached have described the man in a similar fashion and police are investigating whether the incidents are linked.

As a result, police have released comfits based on the descriptions and are seeking to determine whether the images are of the same man.

He has been described as Caucasian, chubby face, possibly aged in his 60’s, with short, balding white hair, white stubble beard and was wearing old glasses.
