Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

A girl was re­port­edly stalked by a gang of men twice in two days on her way home.

Of­fi­cers spoke to the girl and her mum af­ter it was re­ported she had been fol­lowed in Bond Road in Ash­ford last week.

But an in­ves­ti­ga­tion has not been launched and po­lice said “no of­fences have been re­ported”.

It is un­der­stood the group of “four masked men” fol­lowed the girl in a black van.

Po­lice were called at 5pm on Wed­nes­day, June 15, by a woman who said her daugh­ter claimed she was be­ing fol­lowed by a group ear­lier that evening.

The day be­fore it is claimed the girl, who is be­lieved to be aged 12, was fol­lowed by the same group at 3pm.

A po­lice spokesman said: “In both in­ci­dents the girl said they did not make con­tact with her and she made it safely home.

“Of­fi­cers have spo­ken with the girl and her par­ent, no de­scrip­tion of the men or the ve­hi­cle was able to be given. No of­fences have been re­ported.”

It is not thought to be linked to an in­ci­dent yes­ter­day when a man was grabbed around the neck and robbed by a group in Jem­mett Road.
