Qld police issue warning over woman allegedly offering school children lifts

Queensland Police are warning children not to accept lifts from anyone that is not known to them after receiving two separate reports of a woman approaching children and offering to drive them to and from school.

The frightening incidents are alleged to have occurred in the South Brisbane area this month.

Detectives said around 8.00am on February 19, a woman approached two school students aged 15 and 17 as they walked along Pine Street at Runcorn.


“The woman stated that she was a teacher at their school and asked them if they wanted a lift to their school.  The teens refused and the woman drove from the scene.”

The second incident happened around 3.15pm on February 23, where the woman drove up to a 12-year-old girl on Wadley Street at Macgregor and signalled for her to come over to speak with her in the car.

The young girl refused and the woman drove off.

Police have since released a comfit image of a woman they would like to speak to. She is described as Asian in appearance, approximately 35-38 years-old, proportionate build with black hair and brown eyes.

The vehicle has been described as a silver SUV similar in size to a Toyota Rav 4.
