Macclesfield Express - - NATIVITY PICTURES -

PO­LICE say they are in­ves­ti­gat­ing af­ter re­ceiv­ing re­ports that a school­boy was fol­lowed home on two oc­ca­sions.

A mother told the Ex­press her 13-year-old son was fol­lowed twice by a man as he walked home from Mac­cles­field Acad­emy.

The young­ster was walk­ing with a friend on Park Lane when he no­ticed a car drive past be­fore pass­ing again in the other di­rec­tion at around 4pm on Tues­day, De­cem­ber 15.

He then no­ticed it again on Chapel Street and Old Mill Lane.

On Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 17, as he walked home around 4.20pm he said he saw the same car drive past and wait out­side his home. Sgt He­len Per­ci­val, Cheshire po­lice, said: “We don’t ap­pear to have had any more re­ports and are fol­low­ing lines of en­quiry af­ter speak­ing with the fam­ily.

“Any­one who saw any­one act­ing sus­pi­ciously in th­ese ar­eas be­tween 4pm to 5pm should con­tact po­lice.

“It is im­por­tant to note the man didn’t ap­proach or speak to the teenager but his be­hav­iour caused con­cern and we would like to speak with the man to es­tab­lish the cir­cum­stances.

“In the mean­time we con­tinue to ask peo­ple to re­port any sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour.”

Con­tact po­lice on 101 quot­ing in­ci­dent num­ber 643 of De­cem­ber 17.
