Boys ap­proached

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Po­lice are con­cerned about a re­port of a man try­ing to lure chil­dren into his van.

Two 10-year-old boys were ap­proached by the man on Land­scape Rd in Mt Eden about 2pm on Satur­day.

‘‘The two boys took ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tion by not en­gag­ing with the male and run­ning in the op­po­site di­rec­tion,’’ Avon­dale po­lice De­tec­tive Sergeant Rick Vea­cock says.

The Poly­ne­sian man, aged be­tween 30 and 50, had short black hair, and a medium length black beard.

He was wear­ing a white or pink T-shirt and a blue and white stripped head band.

The van was grey or sil­ver, with a dent in the driver’s door, and had tinted win­dows.

Any in­for­ma­tion call 820 5744.
