9 Year-Old Managed To Break Free And Run Off To Raise Alarm
E-Fit Published After Suspicious Incident
Police in Northampton have released an e-fit of the man they would like to speak to in connection with a suspicious incident on a towpath off Banbury Lane, on Monday afternoon.
A man approached a 10 year-old boy at about 3.30pm and then made off in the direction of the M1 after the boy walked away from him.
The man who approached the boy was white, aged 25-30, 6ft 1ins, of medium build, with a red mark on the right hand side of his chin.
He had brown hair, blue/green eyes and wore a grey hooded top with the hood up and a big pocket on the front. He was also wearing grey jogging bottoms and black trainers with red stripes across the side.
Officers investigating the incident are appealing for anyone who may have been in the area and saw the man to contact them. They would also like anyone who may recognise the description of the offender to contact them.
The local Safer Community Team will be conducting regular patrols in the area in support of the operation.
Detectives are also urging parents and guardians to remind their children of the appropriate safety advice with regard to strangers, encouraging them to tell a parent, teacher or police officer if they are approached.
