North Waikato News - - News -

Ngaru­awahia po­lice are seek­ing the pub­lic’s as­sis­tance after a re­port of a man at­tempt­ing to en­cour­age a 16-year-old girl into his ve­hi­cle in Ngaru­awahia on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon last week.

The com­plainant had re­turned from Hamil­ton and got off the bus at the in­ter­sec­tion of Great South Rd and Galileo St, Ngaru­awahia. She crossed Great South Rd and walked across the grassy area to Galileo St.

As she was about to cross Galileo St, a ve­hi­cle drove past and the male driver smiled at her and waved. She con­tin­ued down Galileo St, and as she was cross­ing Carl­ton St the ve­hi­cle went past her and turned into Carl­ton St and parked on the cor­ner.

As she passed by, the male driver asked her if she wanted to get into his car and go with him.

She said no and he asked if he could get her phone num­ber so he could con­tact her later on.

The driver was de­scribed as a New Zealand Euro­pean, aged 19-25 years with loose, curly brown hair that is off the shoul­der. He is of skinny build and clean shaven. The ve­hi­cle he was driv­ing was de­scribed as hav­ing four doors, turquoise blue in colour and quite old look­ing. Po­lice would like to speak to the driver about his be­hav­iour.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can con­tact the Ngaru­awahia po­lice sta­tion on 07 824 8199 or al­ter­na­tively in­for­ma­tion can be left anony­mously with Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111.
